Nita Mallory-Renfew is an art photographer and freelance journalist. Born in New York City, she was raised in Mexico, studied in Europe and lived on a kibbuta in Israel before returning in 1969 to the place of her birth, where she still lives. In the early 1990s, after a period of inaction in the arts, Mallory-Renfew began to make photoboxes, which incorporated her photography with sand. dried leaves and flowers. Her work is on a small scale, which she believes conveys a sense of both intimacy and mystery: she considers them miniatures. She was a friend of both Salvador Dali and Leonora Carrington, whose surrealist works influenced her own. She has shown at several galleries in New York, including a solo exhibition at Eugenia Cucalon Gallery, entitled “My Mother, Daughter of the American Revolution,” which featured 100 photoboxes with images of her eighty-year old mother, Helma, in the nude.
