Frances Borchardt


A native Washingtonian Frances Borchardt is a travel photographer who presents her images through non-traditional processes. The focus of her work turned closer to home when she moved to Churchton, Maryland in Southern Anne Arundel County.

Borchardt studied photography at the University of Maryland Baltimore Campus and at Maryland Institute. She graduated from George Washington University with a degree in photography and graphic design. She worked for over twenty-five years as a photo editor in the magazine and newspaper industry before picking up a camera again while on vacation in China.

Borchardt’s photography has been reviewed in The Washington Post, profiled on Maryland Public Television, and featured on National Public Radio’s Art Beat. Her work can be viewed at the Art League in Alexandria, Virginia and River Gallery in Galesville, Maryland. She is a founding member of the Muddy Creek Artist Guild.
