Meg Farrell (b. 1984)  lives in Portland, Maine. She received her BFA in photography from Parsons School of Design in 2007. Farrell uses photography to recreate moments and experiences steeped in her identity to explore the meaning and significance of universal human interactions and experiences such as motherhood, sexual assault and mental health. Performance plays a huge role in her artwork. With each photo series the act of collecting, making, performing and staging allows Farrell to immerse herself in each project.
