Eileen Quinlan – Episode 13

“So I was obsessed with smoke on a number of levels and I had to smoke like 20 cigarettes an hour in order to produce these pictures which was supposedly going to help me quit.” Eileen Quinlan’s photographic work explores the history, the tradition, and the boundaries of the medium itself. She has had amazing success as a working artist, Eileen is represented by Campoli Presti in London and Miguel Abreu in New York. She and her husband, Cheney Thompson, moved to Brooklyn to an old garage that they shared with friends to help pay for the rent and then eventually purchased the building to use as their studio. They live and work in Brooklyn.
