Joni Sternbach was born in the Bronx, New York. She graduated from New York University/
International Center of Photography (ICP) with an M.F.A. in Photography in 1987. She was part
of the adjunct faculty at NYU for over 20 years, and is currently a faculty member at ICP teaching
wet plate collodion. Sternbach uses early photographic processes to create contemporary
landscapes and seascapes. Her photography has taken her to some of the most desolate deserts
in the American West to some of the most prized surf beaches on both coasts. Sternbach’s solo exhibition, SurfLand, which captures portraits of surfers in tintype, opened at
the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, in May 2009. SurfLand was also exhibited
at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon, and will be on view at the Southeast Museum of
Photography in 2013. Sternbach’s first monograph, SurfLand, was published in May 2009 by
Photolucida. Recently Sternbach traveled to Byron Bay, Australia as part of Art Park/Atlantic’s
new Artist-in-Residence program. Sternbach is represented by Joseph Bellows in La Jolla,
CA, and Edward Cella Art and Architecture in Los Angeles. Her work is part of many public
collections including the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego, CA, Maison Européenne
de la Photographie. Paris, France and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. She is the recipient of
several grants including NYFA and CAPS.
