Sally Gall Bio
About The Artist
Sally Gall is a photographer whose subject matter includes gardens, cultivated fields, swimmers, power lines, blossoming trees, and the ground-level kingdom of things that creep and crawl.
Represented by one of New York's top galleries for the last 22 years, Gall has a unique talent for capturing magnificent images of nature. In addition to her fine-arts career, she teaches photography and works as a commercial and editorial photographer. Her work is in numerous museums and corporate collections, and she has been awarded several prestigious fellowships, including two MacDowell Colony Fellowships and a Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Residency.
