Over the past ten years Marjorie Neu has nurtured and explored her life-long passion for photography with intense study and extensive travels to exotic locales. Neu’s work featuring Maasai, Vietnamese children, New York street scenes, and the Churchill Polar Bears have been exhibited in juried shows at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre, in Palm Beach, Florida. Her first exhibit in 2010 at ABC Home in New York City featured a selection of her polar bear pictures from Churchill, Canada. In 2019 National Geographic selected her "Running Wild" photo of horses in Camargue, France as Photo of the Day. Neu's focus is on isolating and preserving moments, stating “a photo is an everlasting moment in time to be savored because the moments are all we have.” Currently movement serves as her intention towards a more colorful and abstract exploration of photography.
The print available is an abstract photograph using creative motion techniques, captured in Holland in 2018.
