Colleen Neff was born in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and has lived all over the country courtesy of having a father who worked for I.B.M. She discovered a love of photography and art history at Beloit College in Wisconsin. Starting out with a pinhole camera she constructed herself, Colleen now uses a Leica D-Lux 5 as it fits perfectly into her small backpack. She currently lives in Berkeley, California, and photographs life as she walks and hikes in the Bay Area.
