Tara Rice has taken her camera snorkeling in the Pacific waters of the Galapagos islands and trekking in the Himalayan mountain ranges of Nepal, and to many places in between. Her addiction to travel is fueled by her curiosity about people and the many different ways they live and interact with their environment.
Tara was raised at the end of a long, dirt road in Stowe, Vermont. She was introduced to photography by her father, who owned and operated a camera store and lab for 30 years (and who had a pretty sweet darkroom). Yes, she skis. She then went on to work for photographer Marco Grob as his first assistant and studio manager in New York City.
Clients include: Airbnb, Citibank, UPS, GOOD CORP, CNN Parts Unknown, buildOn, Ford Foundation, HALO Trust, Mahouts Foundation, XQ Super Schools, OAFLA, NIB (National Industries for the Blind), Sonder Project, RIPPLE Africa, Photographers Without Borders, Grandmother Project Senegal, Refinery 29, Makeshift Magazine, Tiny Atlas Quarterly, Roads and Kingdoms, and more.
Currently she calls Brooklyn home. It has been 12 years actually, it might be permanent.
