Tanya Marcuse, guest faculty

“I try to open students up to the remarkable expressive possibilities of photography –-and push them in a way that will help them to push themselves.”

Tanya began making photographs as an early college student at Bard College at Simon’s Rock.  She went on to study Art History and Studio Art at Oberlin and earned her MFA from Yale. Her photographs are in many collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the George Eastman House. She received a Guggenheim fellowship to pursue her project Undergarments and Armor (Nazraeli Press, 2005). Her work has been featured and reviewed in numerous publications, including the New YorkerCabinet, Artforum, Artnews, and the New York Times.   Since 2010 Tanya has focused on Fallen, a series of large-scale color photographs that imagine the Garden of Eden after the Fall. Tanya has taught Photography at Bard College at Simon’s Rock, Vassar and ICP.
