Ashley Allen lives in the Colorado front range mountains with her husband and son. With an inclination towards introversion, she has valued familial relationships over large social circles which has caused a reflective nature about an individual's role in the world. Her photographic work explores both the role of an individual in the family and the human/nature relationship.

 

For Ashley, photography is a medium to explore identity. Where do we fit in the world with each other and with our environment? What is the impact of our existence on the land, the air, the trees? How do we identify ourselves within our landscape or within our family? How do we maintain, realize or lose our personal selves within the relationships that we hold most closely? Under what circumstances do we thrive; under what circumstances do we peril? By photographically investigating these questions, she finds a deeper understanding of self.

Her work has been displayed both nationally and internationally.
