Photography Biography

Lora Brody is a Visiting Research Associate at the Women’s Study Research Center of Brandeis University, where she is working on a multi-media project about aging as documented in image, text and spoken word.

She is best known for her images of Red Sox fans as well as a series of photographs that document the final decade of an iconic snack shop at Provincetown’s Herring Cove Beach. Images from these portfolios have been recognized in juried shows and competitions such as the Copley Society Juried Show and PX3 Prix de la Photographie, Paris, and hang in private collections. They have been in solo and group shows at The Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She received a Gold Medal award in the 2014 San Francisco International Photography Exhibit, juried by Paula Tognarelli.

Images from the Fenway portfolio have been exhibited at The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Harvard University, The Griffin Museum of Photography, and a public installation created by The Magenta Foundation on the Boston Harbor Walk.  Several of the Fenway images hang in the team’s corporate offices as well as in the private collections of its executives.

Brody’s photographs have been published on the cover and in feature articles in The Boston Globe Sunday Magazine and The Cape Cod Times.  Her food photography has been featured in Horticulture Magazine, Cape Cod Magazine and Cooking Light. She is the author of twenty books relating to food and cooking, including three books of essays and recipes.

Brody is represented by Writers House in New York City, and by the Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown, MA.
