Toni Pepe is chair and assistant professor of photography at Boston University. Pepe's photographs and installation work address the construction of identity through narrative, gender, and memory. Her most recent work is concerned with telling the story of motherhood from the mother’s perspective –
this is a point of view that is often dismissed. Becoming a mother altered her relationship with time and making. Pepe has become more patient and
experimental in her practice and has embraced failure as both inevitable and useful. Her children appear in her photographs regularly and she is grateful that her practice is something they can share.
Pepe has exhibited both nationally and internationally including the Center for Photography at Woodstock and the Wege durch das Land, Music & Literary Festival. She was a finalist for the Massachusetts Cultural
Council Fellowship, a Critical Mass top 50, and a Review Santa Fe 100.
