Marcy Palmer - Profile PictureMarcy Palmer grew up in the foothill region of the Adirondack Mountains in the historic city, Saratoga Springs, NY.  As a child, she spent time exploring the outdoors which fueled her imagination and play.  

Marcy’s work explores themes of beauty, history, and social justice through the lens of photo history, nature, and science.  She often approaches her work with questions that relate to research and considerations of how the materials in the work can further communicate her ideas. Integrating various approaches to image-making from contemporary to historical practices, Marcy is particularly influenced by the earliest practitioners of photography and the Surrealist and Bauhaus movements.

Marcy has an M.F.A. in Photography & Related Media from the School of Visual Arts and a B.S. in Studio Art from Skidmore College.  Her work has been exhibited at various spaces including The Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Center for Photographic Art, The Griffin Museum of Photography, The Ogden Museum of Art, and other spaces.  Her work has been written about in Lenscratch, The Boston Globe Sunday edition, D Magazine, and other publications.  Marcy released a book with Yoffy Press titled “You Are Eternity, You Are the Mirror” which was chosen as a Photo-Eye 2020 favorite photobook, The Luupe’s Favorite Woman-Made Books of the Year, and Deep Red Press’s Favorite Photobooks.  She lives and works in Dallas, TX.
