Fischer Cherry’s work displays her keen awareness of the conventions of contemporary photography, having worked with luminaires such as David LaChapelle, Steven Klein, and Craig McDean. Her current series – Deconstructing the Selfie – Cherry attends to feminine tropes and the ways in which women frame themselves today through personal photography. In Old World, New World (2015), a young woman takes a picture of herself in a busy crowd in India. While others in the crowd have turned their attention to Cherry’s camera, her subject is entirely absorbed within the world of her selfie.
Fischer Cherry lives and works in New York. She received a MFA from the Brooks Institute of Photography and has been included in shows at Sargent Daughters, New York and Garis & Hahn, New York. Her work is in the collection of Guild Hall, East Hampton.
