Melanie Hill (a.k.a. Kaleidoscope Lady) is a Brooklyn-based photographer and photo artist. Eight years ago, she began her journey with a Fujifilm point-and-shoot purchased from the Home Shopping Network.
The camera had become therapeutic, enhancing her thirst for exploring the city and providing a meditative way of escaping. She then entered an annual employee contest with one of the major hospitals in New York City — winning first place two years in a row.
Engaging with the public through a viewfinder opens her eyes and mind to refreshing points of view about human behaviors, which makes street photography her first choice in terms of genre. Having 40+ years of experience in art and fashion allows her to merge her interests, creating a niche which she calls, “photo-art.”
She speaks through the camera and the lens is her mic.
