Defiant Empathy: Photographing Performing Artists

Join Teri Darnell for an adventure into the photography of performing artists. Defiant Empathy is a summary of Teri’s journey through Photography into the inside world of strip clubs, drag bars and burlesque venues that travelled the world.

Teri Darnell is an artist passionate about people being able to live with who they are inside. She uses her camera to connect to places few people explore. Casual encounters drive her inspiration to express an inward sensitivity to the lives of others. That sensitivity is evident in her images which enable viewers to engage in worlds that stretch their imagination.

Teri serves as Vice-Chair of the Advisory Council for Atlanta Celebrates Photography. She served six years in the United States Air Force, notably in Berlin during the Cold War. In 2015, she retired after twenty-five years of service with a Fortune 50 company as a Multi-Media Development Manager to pursue her passion in photography.
