About Preston Gannaway –
Preston Gannaway (American, b. 1977) is a documentary photographer and artist whose work examines the relationships between individual, community and landscape. Her first book, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, explored the changing character of a seaside neighborhood in Virginia. Self-published as a handmade artist book, it is held in both private and public collections.
She is currently working on a second book from an on-going project now in its 17th year. Remember Me (GOST, 2023) focuses on a boy growing up in New Hampshire following the death of his mother at age 4. The interplay of everyday details, landscapes and portraits work together to create an intimate longitudinal essay on masculinity, loss and mortality. The beginning of the series was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography.
She was a Light Work Artist in Residence in 2018 and a Pollner Distinguished Professor at the University of Montana in 2019. She serves on the Board of Directors of Women Photograph.
In addition to long form projects, she does commissions for publications and brands such as The New Yorker, Airbnb, and New York Times Magazine. Born and raised in North Carolina, she lives in a cabin in Sonoma County, California with her partner and their calico cat.
