H. Lenn Keller
H. Lenn Keller was born in 1951 in Evanston, Illinois. She is a San Francisco based filmmaker and photographer, whose work deals with political and spiritual issues, including identity politics. She has a B.A. in Visual Communication from Mills College, and is currently at work on a series of mixed media photographs of people of color in natural settings in an attempt to re-construct and expand cultural frames of reference. She has made two 16mm short films, Ife (about a black French lesbian living in San Francisco), and Sightings (about two African American lesbians' humorous attempts to connect romantically). She is currently at work on a screenplay, which she hopes to independently produce and direct. She has been exhibiting her photography since 1981.
"E" was published in "Underexposed: The Photographic Image & Black Lesbian Identity" in Aché (a journal for African American lesbians), 1991.
"Dark Adventure" was exhibited in Hypothalamic In[Queer]ies, curated by Robert Kellery for CameraWork Gallery, San Francisco, CA 9993. This piece was one of six mixed-media photographs on the issue of racial objectification and fetishism of African American lesbians within the lesbian community.
