Nancy Floyd has been a visual artist for 40 years. Her interests include the aging female body, the passage of time, and loss. She uses photography and video to address the ways in which lens-based media can connect deeply with experience and memory.
Floyd has received numerous grants and awards including the 2019 ICP / GOST Books First Photo Book Award (New York, NY and London), a 2018 Aaron Siskind Photography Fellowship (New York, NY), and a 2015 John Gutmann Photography Fellowship Award (San Francisco, CA).
Floyd’s artwork is in the collection of the Center for Creative Photography, the High Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Lightwork, the Joshua Tree Highland Residency Program Collection, and in numerous private collections.
Her 39 year self-portrait series, Weathering Time, was published by the International Center of Photography and GOST Books in January 2021. Temple University Press published her first book, She’s Got a Gun, in 2008.
