Gretchen Garner

Gretchen Garner was born in Minneapolis. In 1973–75, she studied photography at the School of the Art Institute, Chicago.

After graduating, she worked for some time as a press photographer at the Chicago Daily News. Apart from photography, Garner has also been a curator, writer and teacher – teaching photography and photo history at the Michigan Grand Valley State University and the University of Connecticut. In the 1980s, Garner devoted herself strongly to outdoor photography. The countryside around Chicago inspired her to travel around the USA and Europe for a decade, producing landscape portrayals that include Denmark, Sweden and France.
