Taisie Berkeley has won national recognition for her magazine profiles of people. In her photo essays, often accompanied by her writing, she brings emotion, perceptiveness and grace to her art.
While teaching photography at the Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Md., Berkeley won a Fulbright Scholarship to India for 2005-2006. There she documented, through words and images, the struggles of impoverished women.
These images have been exhibited at the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts in New Delhi and the Eleanor B. Wilson Museum in Roanoke, Va. Berkeley has also exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, The World Bank, The National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Capitol, all in the Washington, D.C. area.
Berkeley has a BA. from Hollins University, a M.A. in Writing from Johns Hopkins University and a M.F.A. in Photography from the University of Delaware. She studied fine art photography with Mary Ellen Mark, Sally Mann, Bruce Davidson, Eugene Richards and Joyce Tenneson.
