Acclaimed artist/photographer Nancy Burson’s work is shown in museums and galleries internationally. “Seeing and Believing”, her traveling 2002 retrospective originating at the Grey Art Gallery, was nominated for Best Solo Museum Show of the Year in New York City by the International Association of Art Critics. She has served as a visiting professor at Harvard and was a member of the adjunct photography faculty at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts for five years. She is currently teaching “Vision and Style” at the New York Film Academy in NYC.
Burson combined art and innovation in a way that challenged photographic truth at the birth of digital manipulation. She is best known for her pioneering work in morphing technologies which age enhance the human face and still enable law enforcement officials to locate missing children and adults. Her Human Race Machine, which allows people to view themselves as a different race, is used nationwide as an educational diversity tool that provides viewers with the profound visual experience of being another race.
Her new TogetherAllOne concepts and designs encompass everything from interactive children’s books to large public sculptures, lighting installations and videos. These ideas, which are just entering the marketplace, all promote the concept of global unity.
She has collaborated with Creative Time, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and Deutsche Bank in completing several important public art projects in NYC. These projects include the poster project, "Visualize This" (Creative Time, 1991), the billboard, 'There's No Gene For Race" (2000), the poster/postcard project "Focus on Peace", commissioned for the first anniversary of 9/11, and “Looking Up” and “Truth”, at the 60 Wall St. Atrium, 2005.
