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 for her work from both publications and institutions. Most recently, she was awarded the Descubrimientos PhotoEspaña Prize in Madrid, the 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 seen in the pages of magazines and are in the permanent collection of The Museum of Fine Art, Houston. Her work has been exhibited in the US, UK, Germany, Portugal and China. Alongside a constant pursuit of new work, she may often be found chasing tumbleweeds between Dallas and Marfa, Texas.
