In her work, photographer Andrea Modica blurs the lines between fact and fiction. Her compositions and use of shifting focus draw in the viewer, creating open-ended narratives.

Modica has received numerous grants including a 1994 Guggenheim Arts Fellowship and a 1990 Fulbright-Hays Research Grant. Her platinum prints are included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, the National Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., the San Francisco Museum of Art and the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris.
