Marcia Gerardi is an accomplished commercial and fine art photographer who ran an established commercial photography studio in Manhattan’s Chelsea district for over twenty years. Working with a large format camera in the pre-digital era she experimented with special effects, pushing the medium to its limit and creating original images for leading print media and TV. Her account list included: Revlon, Avon, Colgate Palmolive, Warner Communications and many more national and international accounts.

Gerardi’s digital photography utilizes computer manipulated layering and distortion to conjure images invented and hidden in the layers of the subconscious mind. Her equine photos are not manipulated. The photos are a love affair with the majestic beauty and mercurial essence of our equine companions.

Gerardi is a fine art painter as well. Her work, whether figurative art or minimalism, aims to examine our relationships with each other and the cultural environment. This includes a series of paintings in a dedication to the victims of 9/11.

Working in the arts for over thirty years, Gerardi has had the great honor of being a teacher, experimented in holography and has been a photojournalist for Gannett Publications. Her photos have appeared on the pages of national publications such as Vogue, Architectural Digest, W, Elle, House and Garden, National Wildlife Federation, National Geographic, featured in international publications in Japan, Qatar, India and throughout Europe. She is in private collections, has been in numerous solo and group shows including; Rockland Center for the Arts, GAGA Gallery, Garnerville, NY, UpStream Gallery, Dobbs Ferry, NY, Imaging Arts Gallery, Tappan, NY, Beckwith Gallery, Jamaica, VT.

Gerardi is the author of three novels, countless short stories and a lifetime of poetry. She has a studio in Nyack, NY, boards her horse, Tilly Lily, at Silver Rock Farm, Orangeburg, NY and lives in Mahwah, NJ with her husband, Mark and their daughter, Jessica.
