B I O G R A P H Y 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, social affiliation, nationalism and community. 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 for her work from both publications and institutions. Most recently, she was a Grand Prix Finalist at the 32nd International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyeres, France; received the Descubrimientos (Discovery) PhotoEspaña Prize in Madrid; Kolga Photo Award in Tbilisi, Georgia; PhotoVisa Award in Krasnodar, Russia; FotoFest Discoveries of the Meeting Place in Houston; and The Taylor Wessing Portrait Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London. Ms. Newberry's photographs can regularly be seen in the pages of magazines and are in the permanent collection of The Museum of Fine Art, Houston; Centro de Arte Alcobendas, Spain; and Villa Noailles, Hyères, France. Her work has been exhibited throughout the US, Europe and China. She can often be found chasing tumbleweeds between home in Dallas and Marfa, Texas.
