Cynthia Elane 

 Born in Queens NY, she spent 25+ years in the performing arts as a professional dancer. During that time she began documenting her personal and professional growth through photographs a  passion for the visual arts evolved.

Now as a  multimedia artist, her work revolves around memories, and the self -identification, and evolution of women as they navigate through cultural and societal restraints in both the entertainment industry and mainstream society. A lot of her photographic work centers around her life in the during the 1980s-90 and speaks to the human experience and individual identity as she juxtaposes between the past and present to explore how much influence time has on the evolution of one's identity.
