MyrtieCope_P9150028_190915_26.jpg

Myrtie Cope has been focusing on nature, landscape, and architectural photography since graduating from the photography program at Rocky Mountain School of Photography in 2008. She is honored to have photos in several private and public collections around Atlanta including the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport and Emory University Hospital Tower. She has won numerous awards for her work which has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and internationally. Two of her winning images will be exhibited in the 20th Julia Margaret Cameron Award for Women Photographers at Fotonostrum Gallery in Barcelona, Spain in Spring 2024 and the 21st JMC Award exhibition in December 2024. Her newest work, “Nature Embroidered”, was featured in All About Photo Magazine’s September 2023 issue as one of the winners of the Nature issue.

 

She received the Denis Diderot Artist-in-Residence grant at Chateau Orquevaux, France, in 2021 and looks forward to a second residency at Atelier AIR in Dangeau, France in 2023. The residencies have contributed to her love of travel and have allowed her take extended trips through France which she documents in photo books and zines. Her photography is represented by Spalding Nix Fine Art where she regularly participates in exhibitions.
