Mary Frey lives and works in western Massachusetts. She earned her MFA from Yale University in 1979 and taught photography at the Hartford Art School, retiring in 2017. Frey has received numerous awards, most notably a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1984 and two photography fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1980 and 1992. She was the recipient of a Te Foundation Fellowship in 2004 and a grant from the John Anson Kittredge Fund in 2010. Much of Frey’s work addresses the nature of the documentary image in contemporary culture and most recently she has worked with 19th century photographic processes to produce ambrotypes and lithophanes. 

Her book, Reading Raymond Carver, was published by Peperoni Books in 2017 and was on the Paris Photo/Aperture Foundation’s shortlist for best First Photo Book for that year. An upcoming solo exhibition of her work at the Forum für Fotografie, Cologne, Germany (Fall 2018) will coincide with the launch of her second book, Real Life Dramas
