Morgan Rachel Levy, formerly a New York based photographer, now happily resides in San Francisco where she is a master’s student in the Visual and Critical Studies department at CCA. Her areas of research include photography and new media in the digital realm and how social networking practices change identity formation in adolescents.
A native of Philadelphia, Morgan picked up a camera at the age of six and has been taking pictures ever since. Twelve years after that first flash fired, she attended Tisch School of the Arts at New York University where she earned a B.F.A in Photography and Art History. Her undergraduate dissertation focused on cultural memory in contemporary German photography. She has collaborated with artist Joyce Kozloff, worked as an archivist for artists such as Suzanne McClelland, Whitfield Lovell, and Janet Fish, and has worked as a freelance photographer. Her photographs have been published and exhibited nationally and internationally and are held in several private collections. Her awards include the Rosenberg Travel Fellowship, University Honors Scholar, and the Award for Creative Excellence from NYU.
