Stephanie Taiber lives and works in Chicago, IL. Her artistic interests center on the experience of being a woman, a mother, a wife, and a daughter. As an artist, she seeks to create visual connections between emotional experience and the present moment, exploring the tension between internal and external constructs of female identity. Her work is heavily influenced by the life and writings of Virginia Woolf, and is itself narrative in nature while remaining suggestive and minimal. Stephanie uses the camera at times unconventionally as a way of marking a moment, often rephotographing parts of photographs, or documenting ordinary objects with contextual and symbolic significance.
Stephanie received a BFA in Printmaking and Photography from the University of Arizona (1996 Magna Cum Laude). She currently teaches and practices yoga passionately when she is not creating new images and visual narratives that challenge our notions of truth. Stephanie’s work has been exhibited widely and has received several juror’s awards. Her work has appeared most recently at Perspective Gallery in Evanston IL and twice at Filter Photo in Chicago, IL. Selected as a Santa Fe 100 photographer in 2018, she was also named a Top Ten Finalist for the 2017 Summer Fresh Exhibition at Klompching Gallery in New York City and was shortlisted for the 2017 Lucie Foundation Photo Made Scholarship.
