Ms. Connally combines aspects of straight documentary photography with an intense interest in portraiture. Influenced by victorian
portrait artist Julia Margaret Cameron and the modern work of Diane Arbus, her portraits strive to create visual intimacy
through a mix of humor and poignancy.
"A quality I have always admired about this photography is its understated refinement. ... It appears as though things
are as natural in the darkroom as they are in the images."
