Terri St.Arnauld & Frank Yezer, residents of Austin, Texas, US, collaborate to process and print all their black & white and platinum work. Since 2013, they have included digital photography, processing and printing in their portfolio. A love of travel, even around Austin, has inspired much of this couple's work.
St.Arnauld & Yezer's work has been shown in Austin, around Texas and the US, including participation in FotoFest 2010, and in several international group shows. It is in the collections of the University of Texas Harry Ransom Center, the City of Austin, and numerous private collectors.
St.Arnauld began practicing photography as an adolescent but did not actively study it until after college. Classes, workshops and seminars have been interspersed with a predominantly autodidactic curriculum. She has always enjoyed visually studying people and places and likes the creative expression that photography allows while doing this.
Yezer became interested in photography as a ballet dancer with a touring company. But it was not until he made several trips to France that he started to focus on the techniques and printing. His combined interests in technical skills and art have taken him from ballet to bookbinding to photography.
