Ginny Perkins, born in 1960, works as a commercial and fine arts photographer in Baltimore, MD. She received a BA in History from Princeton University, studying photography under Emmet Gowin. She later received BFA from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle and went on to a career in graphic design, including a teaching position at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
Ginny began exhibiting her photographic work professionally in the Baltimore area in 2010. She has shown her work at the Maryland Federation of Art where she was accepted three consecutive years into the national juried exhibition Focal Point. She was awarded an honorable mention in that show in 2011. In 2012, Ginny received an Individual Artist Award ($3,000 grant) from the Maryland State Council for the Arts. Ginny has spent the last five years photographing newborns and their families.
Ginny prints many of her images on a surface that resembles watercolor paper, allowing her work to blur the lines between photography, drawing and painting.
