Born in Brooklyn, New York, photographer and educator Marcia Resnick first exhibited her art at the Brooklyn Children's Museum when she was five years old. She is an alumnus of the Cooper Union and did her graduate work at California Institute of the Arts. Her photographs are exhibited internationally and are in major museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, NYC, Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC, National Portrait Gallery, Washington DC, George Eastman House, Rochester, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, New York Public Library, Jewish Museum, NYC, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam and Getty Museum, Los Angeles. Her work has also been published in numerous books and periodicals that include the Paris Review and Rolling Stone, self-published artist’s books and an autobiographical book of staged photographs about female adolescence, "Re-visions"
Combining confrontation with collaboration, Marcia’s photographic portraits explore fame, sexuality and individual style. While photographing Johnny Thunders, John Lydon and other leading figures in the punk music scene, her focus broadened to include portraits from all the arts, including cultural icons Andy Warhol, William Burroughs, John Belushi and Mick Jagger. Her book "Punks, Poets and Provocateurs: New York City Bad Boys 1977 - 1982" was published in 2015 by Insight Editions.
Marcia lives and works in New York City.
