Description

Hailing from land-locked Nebraska, Edney has clocked over 50,000 offshore miles. She was recently named by National Geographic as one of “Nine Female Photographers Who Push The Limits.” Edney captures on-site action and human emotion from unique and often surprising perspectives, photographing from below the water and above the rig. Her first sailing photography work in 2009 covered American sailor Zac Sunderland, the first person under 18 years of age to sail solo around the world. In 2017-2018, Edney was chosen as an Onboard Reporter for the Volvo Ocean Race, sailing’s most dangerous event. Edney trained for weeks to be able to survive on boats traveling up to 40 knots in waves as high as 30 feet. Edney’s work has been featured on ESPN, ABC Prime Time, and CBS Sports, and in the Los Angeles Times, Sail Magazine, Yacht, Success Magazine, Men’s Journal, Outside Magazine, and Red Bull Adventure.

IMAGES 2019 is presented in memory of Marcia B. Saft. A former Fairfield Museum Board Member and devoted community leader and philanthropist, Marcia Saft (1945-2016) was an enthusiastic supporter of Fairfield’s history and artistic legacy. A special thanks to Southport Galleries for their continuing support.
