Betsy Schneider is a photo-based artist who lives and works in Tempe, Arizona and Sharon, Massachusetts. She is fascinated by photography and uses it to better understand such complicated things as time, decay, the body, childhood, culture, and relationships. Her work has been shown internationally and is in several collections including the Nelson-Atkins Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Museet for Fotokunst in Denmark. A 2011 Guggenheim Fellow, she is currently working on her fellowship project Triskaidekaphobia, portraits and video interviews with 250 thirteen year olds. She is eager to include a wide geographic and demographic in this project and urges anyone with connections to thirteen year-olds interested in participating to contact her. She is an Associate Professor at Arizona State University.
