Brooke White lives in Oxford, Mississippi, where she is Professor of Art and Head of Imaging Arts at the University of Mississippi.

As an artist White embraces, a cross-disciplinary lens-based approach to image making that combines traditional analog techniques alongside digital strategies. For the past twenty years she has made work about the landscape, nature and our response to place. She sees the landscape as a place of refuge and her projects investigate concepts surrounding place, memory, time, and the role they play in establishing identity.

White’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, most notably at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA, Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, GA, Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, VA, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans, LA and the Mamia Bretesche Gallery, Marseilles & Paris, France. She has been a Senior Fulbright Scholar in Bangalore, India and her work has been published in Give and Take: Motherhood and the Creative Process, Aint Bad Magazine, Southern Cultures, Reckonings and Reconstructions: Southern Photographs from the Do Good Collection, and the Oxford American.
