Nanny Trippe has had a love for photography since a young age. What began as recording of pets and nature developed into a love of composition. She comments, "When composition, light and shadow, color and texture come into balance, it is an exciting thing. I love to eye something - be it a building, a tree or a moment in time that encompasses all these elements." Nanny has studied and created photographs through high school at St. Timothy’s School in Baltimore and next at Denison University in Ohio and Richmond College in London, England. She joined the Tidewater Studios in 2009 and has exhibited in Lexington, VA, as well as in regional art shows. In December 2010, she and painter Don Hilderbrandt opened Trippe-Hilderbrandt Studios on Harrison Street in Easton. She has won the “Best Black and White,” “Best Amateur” and “Best in Show” in the 2009 Plein Air Easton Photography Contest and is published in the “Best of Photography 2010” by Photographer’s Forum Magazine. Subsequent photographs have been published in “Best of Photography 2011” through 2015. In 2013, her image “Available Seating” won the Tidewater Camera Club Award for Excellence in Photography at the Academy Art Museum Annual Member Show. She has been juried into several shows at The Maryland Federation of Art. Trippe is a many-generations native of the Eastern Shore and has a true love for the area and capturing its uniqueness.
