Tanyth Berkeley

Grace in Window. 20 x 24 inches. C-Print. Edition of 5. 2006

Artist TANYTH BERKELEY is best known for her nearly life-sized portraits representing the collective desires, struggles and physical manifestations of transgender women, street performers, albinos, nude models, or people she met on the subway in New York.

Her photographic projects exist somewhere between documentary pictures and art photos and explore the intersections between appearance, identity and creativity. Definitively a great acuity and intrepidness.

TANYTH BERKELEY was born in Hollywood, California, and currently lives and works in New York. She received her MFA in photography from Columbia University in 2004 and holds a BA from CCNY in photography and creative writing.
