Roberta Fineberg Photographer

Originally from Boston I lived in Paris, France for ten years, from the 80-90s, traveling extensively before returning to live in New York City. My career began while a student in Paris, with photos and reporting in the Saturday Review. I sold my photography to Le Monde, Jeune Afrique, Paris Match, L'officiel Femme, Ms., Weltwoche, Vanguardia, and later became a stock agency contributor at nonstock, Jupiter, and Getty Images. As award-winning photographer for book cover art, my editorial pictures were published regularly in books and magazines, worldwide. Macmillan published in 1997, City Riders, a book of my photos and text that I had penned on girls and horses.

My black-and-white (gelatin silver) photographs have been exhibited in France, the U.S., and Russia, and are in private and public collections, such as the Bibliotheque Nationale and Bibliotheque Marguerite Durand (Paris, France). New York, 2002, I received an original work grant from the Dept. of Cultural Affairs. Print's Regional Design Annual in 2003 awarded me for book jacket photography (with other images appearing on catalog covers and book jackets for W.W. Norton, St. Martin's Press, Harcourt, Bookspan, and Simon & Schuster). In 2004 I participated in the Cool New York public art festival where I exhibited my photographs of Moscow (of Perestroika-Glasnost) in a solo show in the Empire State Building. In 2011 two gelatin silver prints from my women writers series were shown at Paris Photo by the Ville de Paris. For Curate NY 2013-2014 an image from 'Oh, the Webs We Weave' series was selected by Guest Curator Linda Michael, Senior Curator, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne for an online exhibition.

My current art practice (2010- present) includes photopolymer intaglio prints, nightscapes (Light Play), and an iphoneography diary from which I source images for printmaking. In 2018 my photography, or interdisciplinary creative practice, embraces an increasingly experimental tone.
