Mandy Powers grew up in Greenbrier County, WV. Unable to remember a time when she didn't own a camera, her trilogies show a range from people she loves to landscapes and city skylines, everyday life to once in a lifetime trips including Greece, the United Kingdom and the Canadian Rockies. Many of her photos are straightforward while others are open for interpretation. She loves that what one person sees behind the lens is not necessarily what another sees in the final print. She graduated from the University of Charleston with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (2000) and currently works for a small non-profit company.
