Before Roberta Fineberg was an award-winning photographer, author, and teaching artist, she was a newbie, giddy with excitement when the Saturday Review published one of her photographs. Before long, her work appeared in French magazines and on book jackets for publishers such as Harcourt and Simon & Schuster. Her love of pets lead to the writing of her first book, City Riders, a story in words and pictures about three teenage girls in New York City and their shared love of horses, published by Macmillan.
When she isn't snapping dramatic portraits or offering her skills to businesses in need of creative advertising, she chronicles events and cultural milestones in her signature candid, emotional style. Roberta also shares her experience and skill with others during NYC Spark your Creativity workshops, designed to get students off the beaten path, looking at the city in a new light to boost their creativity. Today, Roberta's photography can be found in France at the Bibliothèque Nationale and the Bibliothèque Marguerite Durand, as well as in the United States and Russia. When she isn't snapping dramatic portraits or offering her skills to businesses in need of creative advertising, she chronicles events and cultural milestones in her signature candid, emotional style.
Roberta also shares her experience and skill with others by teaching workshops and classes. She can often be seen roaming the streets of New York, hopping from island to island as she encourages her pupils to see photography as an adventure in experimentation. As part of her educational outreach, Roberta helps struggling middle-school students and adults who speak English as a second language to improve their linguistic repertoire through photographic excursions and friendly conversations.
