Meghan Boody/No More Blood with Meghan Boody
Meghan Boody tells fantastical stories through pictures about women and girls in predicaments. Compelled to leave their ordinary lives, her young subjects venture into territories of the bogeyman where they must confront their fears and brave dark forces. Female versions of the male heroic quest, these photo novellas unfold in Boody’s unique brew of fairy tale, myth and personal memory. Boody is a born and bred New Yorker. After receiving her B.A. from Georgetown University, she moved to Paris to study fashion design at Parsons. There she took an Intro to Photography course on a whim and  fell in love with the medium. Upon returning to NYC, she apprenticed with photographer Hans Namuth, the chronicler of Jackson Pollack and other noted artists of his day. After three years of training with Namuth, Boody quickly developed her own voice. Integrating Photoshop and digital compositing into her work in the early ‘90s, Boody is considered a pioneer of this new technology. She has exhibited her work widely since the late 1980’s. Recent shows include “Radical Terrain” at the Rubin Museum, NYC; “Magical Realism” at the Houston Center for Photography; and “Fairy Tales, Monsters and the Genetic Imagination” at the Frist Center for Visual Art in Nashville, TN. Her work is in important collections including The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Herbert F Johnson Museum at Cornell University and The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania. She is represented by Rick Wester Fine Art in NYC, Imago Gallery in California and by Thomas Truehaft Inc for commercial commissions. Boody’s otherworldly art and homes have been featured in The Telegraph Magazine, Marie Claire, Homes & Gardens and New York Magazine.
