Stefanie Klavens’ work focuses on the importance of place and documentation of visual aspects of the American social landscape. Her photographs encourages deeper thought into subject matter often taken for granted: historic single-screen movie palaces, disappearing drive-in theaters, and the quirky individuality often displayed in private homes and places of business. Klavens, a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Grants recipient, studied at Boston’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts, where she received a BFA and was awarded a Traveling Fellowship.
