Bella Kirchner is a freelance photographer based in Austin, Texas. While she dabbled in photography in high school and college, she got serious many years later when she picked her camera back up, took classes, and found new inspiration. Since then, she's won awards, exhibited her work, and participated in workshops, including Eddie Adams XXXI (2018). 

Her photographs of people & stories have an air of nostalgia layered with a subtle heaviness. Her other body of work focuses on minimalism and shapes that can be found in the ordinary scenes of the everyday. 

She's always looking for new stories to capture.
