A University of Minnesota graduate from South Minneapolis, Terra Rathai came to photography in her late 30s “when I decided to commit to a 365 project in 2010, taking photographs every day and publishing them on my blog: avantgarden365. That project changed my life.” Adds Rathai, “I work with everyday subject matter and consider my academic background in Art History to be a major influence on my aesthetic. This training instilled the practice of looking closely and supplied me with a vast mental catalog of images to draw from. I am particularly attracted to color, reflection, abstraction and painterly textures.”
