Nancy Donskoj picked up her first camera in 1972 and has been looking at life through the lens ever since. While roaming the streets of Manhattan with her camera, she took courses at the International Center for Photography, Fashion Institute of Technology, attended a summer seminar at Hampshire College while working at various jobs in the photography industry from PR photography to catalogue work to commercial color printing. She moved to the Hudson Valley in the early 80s and soon after opened her own commercial photography business and art gallery.

Donskoj has exhibited widely in the Hudson Valley including the Carrie Haddad Gallery, Samuel Dorsky Museum, Barrett House and the Reher Center of Immigrant Culture and History. She exhibited abroad in Cologne, Germany, and had one person show in Belfast Northern Ireland.

Recently retired from her photography business she now has the time to devote to her own work. Attracted to both the symmetry in nature and urban decay she continues to explore the world around her with her singular vision to present both the beauty and the absurd. Her recent body of work includes Ghost Towns, New Mexico, Beach Dreams and her continuing Wanderings series.
