Marjorie Kaufman had long been interested in photography, but pressing obligations such as a career in finance, raising two boys and repeated unsuccessful attempts to improve her golf handicap prevented her from pursuing this inclination.
During a sabbatical in 2011, Marjorie dove into the world of photography with classes at the International Center of Photography. Subsequently Marjorie has worked to refine her technique through workshops with Keith Carter, Sam Abell, Arthur Meyerson, Tony Bonanno and Tillman Crane.
Marjorie's image "The Gardien in Repose" recently won theDirector's Award from jurist Jennifer Schlesinger for Photoplace Gallery's Monochrome exhibit. Her image "The Blue Room" was selected by juror Paula Tognarelli as a winner in the NY Center for Photographic Arts's Patterns and Shadows exhibit March 2020. Marjorie has self-published three collections of images: "(Un)Natural Elements By The Sound", an environmental photo essay, "Iceland in August"., and "White Sands".
Marjorie's images have been published in Le Courrier and the Tico Times. Her photo essay on civil war veteran Joe Wheeler may be found here, and her work on environmental pollution in the Long Island sound is here.

Mercado, 107 Prado, Havana, Cuba. In 1927, my grandfather Abe Gordon visited the Merayo photography studio located at this address to have his portrait taken. A refugee from Belarus/Poland, he was unexpectedly detained in Havana for two years before making his way to New York and eventually White Plains where he established a thriving delicatessen and raised a family with his wife, Mollie Feldman.
