Biography

For the last decade, I have been photographing unique people and places in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Crossing Cheshire Bridge series is about an iconic road famous for having many adult entertainment establishments, unique businesses, and family owned restaurants. Recently rediscovered, many of these establishments and local businesses are being demolished to make way for high-end apartments and mixed-use properties.

Sideshow depicts abandoned early 20th century traveling circus trailers and artifacts with today’s sideshow performers. With my photographs, I hope to restore some of the faded beauty of these lost art forms.

Teri’s Crossing Cheshire Bridge series was published by South x Southeast and L’Oeil de la Photographie (The Eye of Photography) magazines in 2016.
Teri was selected as a finalist for the 8th Julia Margaret Cameron Award curated by Laura Noble, Director of L A Noble Gallery in London. Several of Teri’s images will be exhibited during the 2016 Berlin Biennale.

In September 2016, Teri’s image “Peacock” was selected for inclusion in the MOCA GA permanent collection! The purchase was made possible with funds from the Massey Charitable Trust.

Teri earned an EMBA degree from Baldwin-Wallace University. She served in the U.S. Air Force during the cold war in Berlin, and recently retired from UPS as a Multi-Media Development Manager.
