Biography

Born and raised in Los Angeles, photographer Cass Bird graduated from Smith College before moving to New York, where she received early recognition for her earnest and compelling depiction of lives that resist the strictures of societal norms. Her editorials and sensitive portrayal of artists, actors and musicians have challenged and expanded on ideals of femininity, masculinity and beauty.

Bird’s projects span the art, fashion, and commercial worlds. Her photographs are included in the collections of The Brooklyn Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art and The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. Bird’s first book, Rewilding, which depicted two summers spent with a group of women in a Tennessee artist’s colony, was published by Damiani in 2012.

Her fresh, spontaneous style has made her a sought-after photographer for top fashion magazines and her work has appeared in American and British Vogue, T Magazine, The Wall Street Journal Magazine, Self Service, Dazed and Confused, Muse, New York Magazine, The New Yorker and numerous stories for both i-D and Porter, among many others. Her advertising clients include Benetton, Ralph Lauren , American Eagle, Nike, Levi’s, J. Crew , Wrangler, Target, Tory Burch , Lane Bryant, Maiyet, Urban Outfitters, Vans, Whistles, Warby Parker, Keds and Bergdorf Goodman .

Bird currently lives in New York City with her wife and two children.
