Etti Palitz is a fine art and commercial photographer based in New York City. Her work specializes in capturing glass art, flowers and iconic images of New York City.
She is married and has two children. In 1983, her career in photography was launched when she enrolled at the International Center of Photography, where she experienced professional, technical and creative photographic instruction by world recognized photographers.
Etti then developed a method of projecting light through colored glass objects to create luminous and captivating images. Kodak chose her work as an example of excellence for her use of color, at a symposium on color photography held at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Her first solo show was "Romance, A Doll's Story" an autobiographical photographic essay that Etti illustrates through the use of dolls. Today artwork is widely collected and her client list includes Bloomingdales, Diane von Furstenberg, Lalique, Baccarat and Gardner & Barr Venetian glass.
"She is an excellent painter who holds a camera instead of a brush.
Only a handful of photographers achieve such a complex and unique vision."

"Etti Palitz can easily be described as more than a photographer.
Whereas other photographers document the reality around them,
Palitz colors and changes reality before she documents it through her professional lenses."
- Avi Azolai
"She uses photography as a writing and imaging tool to express her life experiences. . .
Etti's sense of discovery extends from the childlike view of the world, to that of a fully conscious cosmopolitan woman."
- Robert Blake, Chair General Studies Program
International Center of Photography
"Even though she has established her reputation as a glass photo-artist and these photographs are enhancing the covers of magazines. . . Etti has mobilized her camera in other domains. In her first solo show entitled 'Daniella, A Doll's Story'. . . she employes the allegorical use of dolls: shattering the old myth of Prince Charming and gives a new definition to relationships between men and women in the reality of the new millenium. Yes, this kind of social statement defines Etti's artistic journey and as always through the lens."
