Tina Tryforos is a photographer, bookmaker and educator based in Rhode Island. She explores human ecology and the complicated relationships people have with the natural world. Her experiences with nature were informed by the urban surroundings of a child growing up in Queens, NY in the 1970’s. Nature seemed mediated and compromised by human intervention, including her own. Her photographs are quiet comments on the disquieting evidence of how humans are playing with our planet.
Tina Tryforos has a BA in Art from Union College and an MFA in Visual Studies from the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY. She often teaches photography and digital art at the Community College of Rhode Island.
