Meghann Riepenhoff's current work stems from her "fascination with the nature of our relationships to the landscape, the sublime, time, and impermanence."

Born in Atlanta, Riepenhoff is a photographic artist living in San Francisco and Bainbridge Island, Washington. She has been published in Harper’s, Aperture PhotoBook Review, BOMB magazine Word Choice, B&W and Color, the Seattle Times, and Zyzzyva.

Her exhibition record includes the High Museum, San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery; Kohler Art Center, Galerie du Mond (Hong Kong); the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History; San Francisco Camerawork; the Center for Fine Art Photography; Memphis College of Art; Foley Gallery; The McLoughlin Gallery; Duncan Miller Gallery; the Royal Nonesuch Gallery; the University of Missouri; Regina Rex; Photographic Center NW; Atlanta Photography Group Gallery; Memphis College of Art; and El Museo de la Ciudad.

In 2014 Charlotte Cotton awarded Riepenhoff first place in the Camera Club of New York’s Annual Juried Competition. She also was a Nominee for the Baum Award, received Honorable Mention for the John Clarence Laughlin Award, and was selected as a Top 50 Photographer by Critical Mass.

Riepenhoff is currently an affiliate artist at the Headlands Center for the Arts and has been an artist in residence at the Rayko Photo Center and the Banff Centre for the Arts.

She has lectured at Brown University, the San Francisco Photo Alliance, the Society for Photographic Education Conference, the University of Art and Design (Queretaro, Mexico), and has hosted workshops on the value of photography for at-risk youth.

She earned her BFA in photography from the University of Georgia and her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, where she is now a member of the visiting faculty.
