Nancy J. Parisi
Photographer/Sole Proprietor, Nancy J. Parisi + Social Documentary Photography
I've been a full-time photojournalist, and journalist for two decades, specializing in events, political work, lifestyle features, and portraits. Since 1998 I've been a contributor to Buffalo Spree Magazine, where I'm also Advertising & Events Photographer. I was a founding staff member of the Buffalo weekly Artvoice, where I was photo editor, and creator of the column What Has Happened – a pictorial of cultural events in Western New York – for fifteen years. I attended University at Buffalo where I crafted an arts management curriculum via Black Mountain College II, and earned an Honors English Department B.A., and an unofficial photography minor. In 2005 I completed a Masters of Fine Arts degree at Parsons School of Design (a division of New School University in Manhattan), part of their first-ever class of M.F.A. Photography students. I'm versatile as a maker of visual and written language.
