Tracy berglund co-founder
Tracy Berglund is an artist, photographer, filmmaker, designer, and lifelong student of the human condition.
After Vassar College, she attended the Maine Media Workshops and College, where she earned a certificate in fine art photography, darkroom and printing processes. She took a position at a literary agency in New York City where she had the privilege of working alongside renowned garden writers and designers Ken Druse and Madison Cox, American novelist Celestine Sibley, and famed art historian, Barbara Ehrlich White.
Wanting to explore her own creativity she branched off as an independent photographer. Photography eventually led her to film, and the Jim Henson Company, where she worked in licensing. In the late '90's she moved to work in production for Park Pictures and Normal Networks, the former parent company of Vice News. After working at Normal for a few years, she was drawn back to the more creative aspects of film, photography and design, and decided to dive fully into artistic endeavors, working for herself until founding Oh Sister Productions.
Tracy draws inspiration from Marcel Duchamp, Emmet Gowin, Ana Mendieta, Lisette Model, Ross McElwee, and Errol Morris. Her work is diverse in medium, yet always guided by her unique voice--one of earnestness, depth, and a dash of satire. Her work has been seen nationally at museums and even as album art in Peter Wolf's 2010 album, Midnight Souvenirs. She resides in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where she infuses Oh Sister with her artistic flair and southern sensibilities..
Jennifer Berglund co-founder
Jennifer Berglund is a National Geographic Explorer, writer, film producer and exhibit developer who travels the world to tell the stories of science. She has written and produced work for numerous national and international outlets including Discover Magazine, Scientific American, the National Geographic Society, and the Discovery Channel, and works closely with world-renowned scientists and scholars at Harvard University to develop exhibits for the Harvard Museums of Science and Culture, a consortium of four museums spanning the disciplines of natural history, archaeology, anthropology, and the history of science. Her work has taken her to all seven continents, from the Amazon Rainforest, to the Dry Valleys of Antarctica, the depths of the Pacific Ocean, and even to the heart the world’s longest underwater cave system. She believes that science is the key to a better, more informed society, and that storytelling is often the missing link between it and the public at large.
elena eeckhout intern
Elena Eeckhout is a Spanish high school student. She is interested in science and art and she has found that photography allows her to mix these two passions. Recently she has been experimenting with tintypes and she posts her pictures @the_photogarphist on Instagram. On the science side, she has done research on different topics ranging from the HXX, the first sea watch invented by John Harrison, the hygienic revolution started by doctor Ignaz Semmelweis or the impact on the human body of artificial sweeteners like Sucralose.
She finds inspiration in Frida Kahlo because of her use of color -- "although all of her suffering, she always used color to brighten the image we have of pain as if something good could come out of it". And from Robert Berglund, who once said to her in a haiku-like way "Think, brain" and has always inspired her to figure out the magic of the brain. Elena likes reading, watching comedies and action films, playing guitar, attempting to write song lyrics, learning HTML, and browsing on her computer.
