Tara Rice is a photographer living in New York City, but following her work around the world.
She 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 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). After graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography in 2007, she went on to work for photographer Marco Grob as his first assistant and studio manager in New York City for six years before striking out on her own.
