Elena Herzog (née Pisetski; born in 1970) is a Russian-American visual artist and photographer.
Herzog moved to Leningrad in 1987 to attend the Philological Faculty of Leningrad University, where she studied languages (English and Spanish) and literature. In 1990 she emigrated to the United States and graduated with a degree in Philosophy from Mills College, specializing in the History and Philosophy of Science. She was also a research consultant at Stanford University. She started taking photographs in 1997 and studied photographic printing techniques with the Italian master printer Ivan Dalla Tana in Milan and later with the French master printer Marc Valesella. She combines some of the very early photographic darkroom processes with contemporary and her own techniques to achieve her desired effects.
