Rita Nannini became a photographer the year she lived in Madrid without a camera. Originally drawn to the medium as a vehicle to capture otherness, her personal work focuses on the vernacular.
Her solo exhibitions have featured projects that include a small enclave of ethno-economically specialized farmers in NJ, motherhood in the first person, and the micro-landscape of her own backyard.
Rita studied photography at the Corcoran School of Art, the International Center of Photography and the New School/Parsons. She lives in Brookyn and is a member of the Kunstraum Artists' Studios near the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
