Cynthia Delaney grew up in Winnemucca, Nevada, where she developed a great love of the outdoors. She took up photography at age twelve and worked exclusively on farm and cloud imagery for several years. Later she served on her high school yearbook committee and dabbled in fine art photography in college. At nineteen she went on a whirlwind trip to Europe with camera in hand. It changed her life. At twenty-one she moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, enticed by the blooming cholla and the anthropology department at the University of New Mexico. A year and a half later she moved to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, dropped the anthropology phase, and received a bachelor’s degree in creative writing from the University of Alabama. She also completed an accelerated program in photography at New England School of Photography in Boston, Massachusetts. During the years of self-imposed exile she was never really able to shake the Winnemucca sand out of her shoes and she returned to Nevada in 1996. She currently lives in Elko, and although she periodically takes flight to the far corners of the earth, her life is firmly intertwined with the desert like the tenacious taproot of the sagebrush. Cynthia is a widely published photographer and writer. Besides her busy freelance career she holds a position at Great Basin College as adjunct photography instructor and is a correspondent for the Elko Daily Free Press. She recently completed a master’s degree in documentary photography at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Although she has long been a photographer Cynthia pursued a short-lived career as an autopsy technician during her early college studies in forensic anthropology. She declined other lucrative opportunities in lawn mowing, modeling, and mobile home sales due to the ever stronger pull of the camera. When not working or traveling Cynthia likes to spend her time gardening, hiking, snowshoeing, reading, and drinking Chinese beer, occasionally all at the same time. Her other artistic skills include book arts, metalsmithing, and alternative process photography. Cynthia shares her home and life with her husband Ronnie Joe Varnell and their bug-eating cat named Gato.
