Mendi Egging, a long-time resident of Pratt, is owner and operator of Mendi Egging Photography, a photography business operating in Pratt and Wichita, KS. Mendi is a graduate of Pratt Community College and Fort Hays State University, where she received a BFA in photography. In college, Mendi developed a passion for a lost art, film photography. Her passion for film photography may not seem important with today’s cameras, but the precision and patience behind it helped her realize that photography is an art form, sometimes lost in a digital age.
After years of experience in the field, including studio and film photography, Mendi began her venture into business for herself. That has led to the creation of Mendi Egging Photography. Mendi was the photographer for Skyline High School’s 2015 Prom and Sacred Heart Catholic Church’s 2015 First Communion. In 2015, Mendi was honored to meet and photograph an event with all the Miss Kansas contestants, including Miss Kansas Hannah Wagner.
Mendi’s exhibit can be viewed at the Delmar Riney Art Gallery at Pratt Community College Monday through Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m, or by appointment. For more information or to be considered as a “Featured Artist of the Month,” contact Lisa Perez Miller at 620-672-3559 or [email protected].
