Colleen Gutwein O’Neal is a photographer practicing both digital and analog formats from the Northeast, United States.  She works predominantly in documentary and portraiture styles, but also incorporates alternative photographic processes in her exploration of the human experience. O’Neal’s studio has been in Newark, NJ since 2006 which has been the inspiration behind documenting artists in the area for her most extensive series, begun in 2013,The Newark Arts Photo Documentary Project. With a forthcoming exhibition of this work in 2018, Colleen will give a ruminative perspective of these artists with lasting distinction.
