Fine Art and Editorial photographer Nancy Newberry is interested in the strange rituals of everyday life. Known for her photographs of people, her work often explores the interplay between individuality and social affiliation. Her most well-known series, MUM is a tableau centered around a unique custom virtually unknown outside of her home state of Texas.
She has received many honors and awards including Descubrimientos (Discovery) PhotoEspaña Prize, Madrid; Kolga Award, Tbilisi Georgia; PhotoVisa Award, Krasnodar, Russia; FotoFest Discoveries of the Meeting Place, Houston and Taylor Wessing Portrait Exhibition, National Portrait Gallery in London.
Ms. Newberry's photographs can regularly seen in the pages of magazines and are in the permanent collection of The Museum of Fine Art, Houston and Centro de Arte Alcobendas, Spain and has exhibited throughout the US, Europe and China.
In her constant pursuit of new work, she can be found chasing tumbleweeds between Dallas and Marfa.
