Meghan Boody grew up in NYC and received a B.A. from Georgetown University in philosophy and French. She apprenticed with the photographer Hans Namuth for three years. Her work is shown widely in galleries and museums internationally and is in important collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Herbert F. Johnson Museum at Cornell University. Boody was a Sony World Photography Award finalist for The Lighthouse and How She Got There, her ongoing series about a child orphan adrift in a nineteenth century Dickensian world. She is known as one of the first photographers to successfully integrate digital technologies into her work. Salomon Contemporary presented Meghan Boody: Psyche & Smut Lives, a solo exhibition of Boody's photographs and sculpture in 2011.
