Residency Dates: December 31, 2012- January 6, 2013
For over decade Nora Herting (noraherting.com) has been involved in a tumultuous relationship with photography that has included affairs with sound, video, and performance. In the past she has found herself hovering with a giant camera over people’s beds, cooing madly at shriveled infants during a reconnaissance mission as a JcPenney portrait photographer and photographing coiffed 6 year old cheerleaders.
Her most recent project is a published book of portraits. She has been a fellow and artist-in-residence at The McColl Center of Visual Arts, Triangle Workshop, Anderson Ranch for the Arts, and the Brooklyn Historical Society. She holds a MFA from The Ohio State University, and BFA in Photography from the University of New Mexico. If you have found yourself at the Wassaic Project, Dumbo Arts Festival, Brooklyn Public Library or on 47th street in Manhattan, you may have seen her work. She lives and works in Brooklyn.
