About Terry Boddie

Terry Boddie is a photographer and multi-disciplinary artist who explores historical and contemporary aspects of memory, migration and globalization refracted through his experience as a first-generation immigrant from the island of Nevis in the Eastern Caribbean. He experiments with different disciplines in search of a language that transcends our traditional notions of a photograph, blurring the distinctions between photography, drawing and painting. Boddie earned his BFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and an MFA from Hunter College. He has exhibited his work in institutions including the Parc La Villette in Paris, Brooklyn Museum, Smithsonian, The Studio Museum in Harlem, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Philadelphia Museum of Art Art Museum of the Americas.  Boddie’s awards and honors include artist residences at The Studio Museum of Harlem, The Center for Book Arts, Marie Sharpe Walsh Foundation. He’s also received artist fellowships from Center for Photography at Woodstock, the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Brodsky Center, the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and a photography grant from the George and Helen Segal Foundation. His work is in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum, The National Museum of African American History and Culture as well as private collections.
