Francie Bishop Good traverses social and personal boundaries from beauty salons in Queens, NY to backyard picnics in suburban Colorado, and fundraisers of the art world elite. Her viscous photographs suspend the contemplative moments of women in the flux of desire, affirmation, and responsibility. Her subjects seek empowerment through local vocabularies of posture, fashion, and domestic interiors. They are stewards of unborn children, pet dogs, and public spaces where women of complex ages, races, and socioeconomic conditions find the stillness to be photographed.

 

Francie Bishop Good was born in Bethlehem, PA, and lives and works in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Her work has been exhibited throughout the US, Europe and Latin America and is included in public and private collections in the US. Her work has appeared in publications, including The Miami Herald, Art in America, and ARTnews, among others

Born in 1949 in Bethlehem, PA; lives and works in Fort Lauderdale, FL
