Joanna Ebenstein (b. 1971, Philadelphia) received her BA (with honors) in Intellectual History from the University of California at Santa Cruz in 1994. Since then, she has produced an eclectic body of work, including photography, a blog, installation, and graphic design. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, and her photography has been included in publications both at home and abroad. Ebenstein's recent work intersects art and medicine, the secret life of objects, the history of museums, and man-made universes. Recent projects include: "The Morbid Anatomy Library," an artist's library project which contains books and artifacts related to the Morbid Anatomy blog; "Private Cabinets," a photographic series documenting extraordinary private collections; Observatory, a performance/exhibition space inspired by the 18th Century notion of "rational amusement;" "Anatomical Theatre: Depictions of the Body, Disease, and Death in Medical Museums of the Western World;" and “The Great Coney Island Spectacularium,” an exhibition on the history of entertainment at Coney Island.
