About Lena Kathleen McBean

Hello! I was born in Edina, Minnesota in 1995, but have spent most of my life in the greater Baltimore area. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts at Towson University May 2017. I come from a family of creators and inventors that continually push the limits of what can be. My enchantment with photography started when my parents gave me their 1988 Polaroid camera when I was four years old. We were amongst one of our many moves, which was one of the reasons I found it so beautiful. Time always seemed so fragile and fleeting, but my camera gave me the power to steal a moment. I want viewers to look at my work and apply their own emotions and memories to create an intensely personal experience.
