Marjorie Salvaterra’s images reveal “a fine line between sanity and insanity,” according to The Getty Center’s Virginia Heckart, Associate Curator of Photography.
Los Angeles-based photographer Marjorie Salvaterra’s work is full of drama, wit, and provocation. Inspired by her own experiences as an artist, traveler, wife, and mother, she developed ongoing interest in female community and the roles of women around the world. Salvaterra got her start in photography while on a film set in Morocco, and her startlingly unique work soon caught the attention of museums, galleries, and events around the world, including the Rencontres d’Arles in Arles, France.
Her work was included in the George Eastman House Museum auction at Sotheby’s, New York and she was runner-up for the 2009 and 2010 Berenice Abbott Prize for Emerging Photographers, and was named one of the Top 50 Photographers of 2015 by LensCulture.
