Terry Corrao found her original photographic inspiration at a 1977 exhibition of Ruth Orkin’s work in New York City. The images she discovered there triggered a lifelong exploration of the way people engage the world and each other. Born in Elgin, Illinois, Terry was raised in Southern California and Texas and studied at the International Center for Photography, Otis-Parsons and UCLA.
Photographs from Father Daughter have been exhibited at TransArt ‘97 in Paris and the Leica Gallery in New York and have been published in the New York Times and in the books Dino, the Life and Films of Dino DeLaurentiis and Philosophy Dog, the Art of Living with Man’s Best Friend. After living in New York City for most of their adult lives, Terry and her husband Angelo now divide their time between Alabama and Vermont, spending time with their children and grandchildren. Father Daughter is her first book.
