About the event
Join us to view Elena's work on this August First Friday! Light refreshments will be available.
Elena Ganusova was born and raised in Russia; Siberia, to be exact. She is a microbiology (MS) and biophysics major (PhD) and has worked in research labs throughout her career. She fell in love with photography when her father introduced her to the magic of black-and-white photography around the age of 6. Her interest in photography grew stronger over the years, and finally she decided to go get a certification in photography from the University of TN (Knoxville). A few years ago, Elena would not have dreamed about showing her artwork. She started showcasing her work at various local, state, national, and international competitions, including Knoxville exhibitions, where her work was highly received. Elena has received photographic craftsman (2019), Master Artist (2022), and Master of Photography (2023) degrees with Professional Photographers of America (PPA). She has also had the great honor of being a board member for the Professional Photographers of Tennessee (TNPPA) and Professional Photographers of East Tennessee (PPETN), as well as being the Past-President of PPETN.
