Betsy Pinover Schiff, our presenter, is a noted photographer of landscape architecture, gardens and travel destinations. Her images have been described by The New York Times as “an ambrosial paean to public and private spaces.” She brings to her work a strong sense of color and graphics, the signature elements of her style.
Betsy is best known as the principal photographer of six garden books, including four about NYC gardens: The Sidewalk Gardens of New York, (Monacelli Press, 2016), Windows on Central Park: the Landscape Revealed (Schiffer Publishing Ltd.,2011), New York City Gardens (Hirmer Verlag, 2010), and Gardens in the City: New York in Bloom, (Harry Abrams, 1999).
Betsy’s work has been featured in three exhibitions in Mexico, as well as exhibits in the New York metropolitan area. Her work is in more than 75 corporate and private collections here and abroad. She studied photography at the International Center of Photography and the School of Visual Arts in New York.
