Craft and Camera: The Art of Nancy Ford Cones
On view through January 15, 2023
Taft Museum of Art
Cincinnati, Ohio

Nancy Ford Cones created photographs that earned her an international reputation and recognition in prestigious journals such as “Camera Craft,” as well as popular outlets including National Geographic magazine and Kodak advertisements. Despite the praise her works received during her lifetime, Cones’s imaginative and exquisitely crafted photographs were largely forgotten after her death. The Taft Museum of Art’s special exhibition, “Craft and Camera: The Art of Nancy Ford Cones” is the first major presentation of her work.

The Taft presents “Craft and Camera” as part of the “2022 FotoFocus Biennial” theme “World Record,” which considers photography’s extensive record of life on earth while exploring humankind’s impact on the natural world.
