Elizabeth Nida Obert


Following graduation from St. Olaf with a BA in English, Elizabeth pursued an MA in Journalism from The University of Arizona and BFA in Photojournalism from Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. An award-winning photographer, focusing primarily on a documentary approach, Elizabeth served as a staff photographer for 18 years at the Rochester Post-Bulletin.

She has a passion for telling stories and thrives on travel and adventure. Curiosities have been explored and satiated while assisting the destitute in orphanages in India; trekking the Himalayas in Nepal; and riding horseback at dusk through the sandy dunes of the great pyramids.
