Log-in to Favorite

Lorie Novak's photographs, installations, and Internet projects explore issues of memory and transmission, the relationship between the intimate and the public, and the shifting cultural meanings of photographs. In her ongoing project “Above The Fold,” she has saved the front page-sections of the New York Times from 1999 to the present, categorized and analyzed them according to content of the photograph above the fold. Her Web project, 1996-present, exploring how family photographs shape our memory was one of the earliest interactive storytelling sites. Other ongoing projects include “Migraine Register” and “Random Interference.” Her work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions, is included in many Museum collections, and she is the recipient of a 2016 New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Photography among many other awards. Novak is Professor of Photography & Imaging at NY Tisch School of the Arts and Associate Faculty at The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics. She is also Director and Founder of Tisch Future Imagemakers, a participatory photography project in Photography & Imaging, offering free digital photography classes to NYC area high school students.
