A.E. Richardson

Cary, NC

Amanda, otherwise known as A.E., spent over 15 years in health and research, earning a masters and a doctorate degree and conducting studies focused on mental health, risk behavior and behavior change. She left that career behind to pursue something creative that aligned more closely with her passions. She still has the drive to explore emotional health, behavior, and issues that we struggle with as a society, she just chooses to now do it through the medium of imagery and art.

Amanda is a self-taught photographer and retoucher who uses digital manipulation to create images that tell a story, communicate an idea, and evoke emotion. She often uses herself as the subject, more for convenience than anything else. Her goal is to use imagery to touch and inspire, educate and make people think. Ultimately, she would like to use imagery to empower and show people a new version of themselves.
