Rosalind Fox Solomon is motivated by a need for self-discovery, which comes to her through understanding others and the world around them. Over and over, she enters closed circles and takes risks. As she examines human psychology, the exercise of power and the struggle for survival, her pictures provoke strong emotion. Her talent lies in her capacity to interpret and then photograph both the social elements of the places she travels to, and the obsessions and anxieties that travel with her.


Solomon was born in 1930 in Highland Park, Illinois. In 1968, she decided to become a photographer and began studies with New York Photo League member Lisette Model four years later. Solomon was the recipient of a Guggenheim Foundation award, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and grants from the American Institute of Indian Studies from 1981-1984. She has had residencies at Blue Mountain Center, the MacDowell Colony and Yaddo. She is represented by Bruce Silverstein, where she has had four exhibitions at the gallery in New York.


Solomon’s work has been exhibited internationally since the 1970s. A monographic retrospective exhibition of the artist’s work “Chapalingas” was organized by the Photographische Sammlung in Cologne, Germany and covered the years 1975 to 2001. Solomon has also had a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art titled “Ritual”. Other important exhibitions of the artist’s work were held at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington DC; Instituto de Estudios Norteamericanos, Barcelona, Spain; Musée Nicéphore Niépce, Chalon-sur-Saône, France; Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego; Museo de Arte de Lima, Peru; and the Willy-Brandt-Haus, Berlin, Germany.


Her work is in the collections of over 50 museums all around the world, including the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris; Center for Creative Photography, Tucson; Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington; George Eastman House, Rochester; Metropolitan Museum, New York; Museo de Arte de Lima; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington; National Gallery of Canada, Ontario; Photographische Sammlung, Cologne; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. She lives and works in New York.
