Lora Brody

Lora Brody 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.    Her work extends to non-digital techniques such as cyanotype, Van Dyke brown, albumen and salt prints.  These images are captured using traditional film, as well as Polaroid, Holga and handmade pinhole cameras. 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.

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 have been acquired by the Boston Red Sox and hang in the team’s corporate offices as well as in the private collections of its executives.  

She received a Gold Medal award in the 2014 San Francisco International Photography Exhibit, juried by Paula Tognarelli.

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.   Her travel blog, lorabrody.com/the-big-trip, documents in words and images extended journeys in South East Asia, India and Sri Lanka.   She is the author of twenty books relating to food and cooking, including three books of essays and recipes.

She has recently completed a residency at The Goa Center For Alternative Processing in Goa, India.  In addition, she is a Resident Scholar in the Scholar’s Program of the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University where she is working on a project about aging as documented in both image and text.  

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

Current Projects

The Reunion Project 

I am a writer and photographer working on a long-term project that uses images, text, and the spoken word to create an interactive program which gives senior women a chance to reflect on their lives and a voice with which to begin a dialogue with younger women about life choices and decisions.
