Marguerite Courtney is an award winning emerging artist based in Los Angeles who recently won the Grand Prize of the Emerging Focus Competition at Photo LA and an Honorable mention in the Lucie Foundation’s International Photography Awards.

“Moments” is an ongoing body of work that has exhibited in London, New York and Los Angeles. With images captured while surfing, Marguerite shares the mystic and ecstatic moments that exist un-tethered beyond the realm of language, time and other social constructs. In this paradoxical time of hyper communication and unprecedented disconnection, these moments of oneness and connection are more important and precious than ever.  Her goal is to transport you outside the shackles of social constructs into each of these ephemeral moments as she experiences them free of self awareness in connection, rhythm and harmony with the constant fluctuations of nature, the sea, the earth, the sun, the moon, the tides, the wind and our fellow creatures.

Marguerite Courtney studied Photography and Painting at Santa Monica College and  earned her Bachelor of Arts from The University of Virginia.
