Born in New Orleans, Mare Vaccaro completed a BA at the University of New Orleans, followed by an MFA at Parsons The New School for Design in New York City. Her photography investigates the deconstructed female form and its relationship to femininity, beauty, and empty adornment. Vaccaro was awarded a residency with Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont, in 2004, and a “New Works” residency with Banff Center for the Arts in Banff, Canada, in 2007. In 2007 she also completed a residency with A.I.R. Vallauris in Vallauris, France. Vaccaro, who has alopecia universalis, maintains a studio in Chelsea, New York City, and is represented by Rhonda Schaller Gallery.
