Maggie Steber

A longtime and celebrated documentary photographer, Maggie Steber was named as a Guggenheim Foundation Fellow for 2017 and won grant support for her most recent project, The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma, where she is cast as Lily, her dark alter-ego in an alternate universe where anything is possible and all ideas and characters are welcome. A turn from her documentary style, the Secret Garden explores Steber’s own imagination and subconscious as impacted by personal experiences in the depiction of a disjointed world where the photograph is equal parts witness and catharsis.
