Melissa Borman is a Minneapolis based photographer and installation artist. Her work addresses the interconnected relationship embedded in using landscape elements as metaphors to depict our human stories and how these depictions shape our ideas of our surroundings. She is particularly interested in how modes of relaying and receiving information, from fairy tales to social media, impact our collective understanding of the natural world.
Melissa has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including Regional Cultural Center, Co. Donegal, Ireland, Galería Valid Foto BCN, Barcelona, Spain, Museum of Arts and Sciences, Macon, GA, Filter Space, Chicago, IL, and Griffin Museum, Boston, MA. Melissa is a member of Minnesota's longest running collective art gallery, Rosalux. She is a recipient of the Minnesota State Arts Board, Artist Initiative Grant, Metropolitan Regional Arts Council Grant, and Rochester Art Center's Jerome Emerging Artist Award.
