Victoria Manning received her BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts and currently resides in Brooklyn, NY. Her projects explore connections between history, science, art, and literature through the use of photography, sculpture, needlework, and other mediums. Her most recent project, a series of chemigrams, is inspired by the links between World War I gas masks and photographic chemicals. Some of her past projects have included investigations into the history of neurology and hysteria in Reposantes; early photography in Wedgwood; the puzzling anagrammatic nomenclature of a 19th century naturalist in Elfortiana; and the phantom limb phenomena in Scarcely a leaf or limb was left. She has been included in numerous group exhibitions, a solo exhibition of her project Greetings from Oil Country was held in Olean, NY, and her photographs are in several private collections.
