Rosalind Fox Solomon travels the world to find her subjects. She enters closed circles and takes risks in terms of personal experience and artistic practice. Her unflinching gaze at human vulnerability provokes strong emotions. She is the recipient of a Guggenheim Foundation Award, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, a Lucie Award for Outstanding Achievement in Portraiture, and grants from the American Institute of Indian Studies from 1981 to 1984. Fox Solomon has had residencies at the Banff Center, Blue Mountain Center, the MacDowell Colony, and the Corporation of Yaddo. Bruce Silverstein represents Fox Solomon in New York, where she has had four solo gallery exhibitions. Her work is in the collections of more than 50 museums around the world, including the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris; George Eastman House, Rochester; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museo de Arte de Lima; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington; National Gallery of Canada, Ontario; Photographische Sammlung, Cologne; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. In 1988, the Grey Gallery of Art at NYU mounted the 65-print exhibition Portraits in the Time of AIDS, selections of which were exhibited in 2015 at Paris Photo in the Salon d’Honneur. Books of her photographs include Chapalingas (Steidl 2003), Polish Shadow (Steidl 2006) THEM (Mack 2014), Got to Go (Mack 2016), and Liberty Theater (Mack 2018). Fox Solomon lives and works in New York.
