Artistic Profile

Professor Lopez has been working with the 19th century portrait, landscape and the digital media since 1985. Her interest in the electronic environment lies in the believability of the photograph and malleability of the digital medium. For the last several years, she has been interested in the idea of the digital one of a kind image. Lopez’s artwork has been featured in such publications as Aperture Magazine and Naomi Rosenblum's A World History of Photography. Most recently her work was included in The Digital Eye, by Sylvia Wolf, Director of the Henry Art Gallery and former curator of photography at the Whitney Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago. Lopez has received several grants including a National Endowment for the Arts Visual Arts Photography Fellowship. Her work is in many private and public collections such as the Art Institute of Chicago, The Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC and the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, Arizona. Lopez has been teaching at the University of Notre Dame since 1993.
