Meg Birnbaum is a graphic designer, educator, and photographer living in Somerville, MA. Her passion for photography started when she and her teenaged sister shared a darkroom in the attic of their parents’ house. She developed her love for the narrative from the weekly magazines her parents subscribed to and from their fascinating book collection.
Meg has had solo exhibitions as far away at Kobe, Japan and as close as Hudson, NY. Her work is held in the permanent collection of The Museum of Fine Art, Houston, The Lishui Museum of Photography, China and the Museum of Art Pompeo Boggio, Chivilcoy, Buenos Aires.
Birnbaum has designed and art directed many magazines, most notably Cook's Illustrated and The American Prospect. She is currently very happy to be designing catalogs for The Griffin Museum of Photography, where she also leads portfolio building classes, called the Photography Atelier.
