Nancy Newberry

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 PhotoEspaƱa Prize in Madrid, nominated for the FotoFest Discoveries Exhibition in Houston and exhibited at The National Portrait Gallery in London. Ms. Newberry's photographs are in the permanent collection of The Museum of Fine Art, Houston and Centro De Arte Alcobendas, Spain. Her work has been exhibited in the US, UK, Spain, Mexico, Germany, Portugal, Russia and China. Alongside a constant pursuit of new work, she may often be found chasing tumbleweeds between Dallas and Marfa, Texas.
