About the Artist

Deidre Elzer-Lento is a mother, grandmother, wife, teacher, photographer, gardener, traveler and friend; but not always in that order. She won her first photo contest in 4th grade and hasn’t stopped taking photos since. Her transition from developing photos in the darkroom using chemicals to digital was seamless and her explorations with Photoshop have resulted in some amazing images. She believes that looking through the lens of her camera allows her to see the present, appreciate its beauty, and only then, does she photograph it. Sharing the images she takes is her ultimate reward. Deidre’s work is in the permanent collections of museums and businesses. She has been published in books, newspapers, and newsletters. Her photos have graced the cover of G&F magazine twice, received top awards in many photo contests and have been shown on ABC News NY and News 12 Long Island numerous times. She calls Long Island's north shore home.
