Tracy Burke is a photographer from Boulder, Colorado. She began studying photography in the late 1980s as an undergraduate at Yale University. Heavily influenced by the street photographers of the mid 20th century,
Tracy brings the idea of the “decisive moment” off the “street” and into the natural world.
Raised as a city girl in Houston, Texas, Tracy’s exposure to the beauty of the West led her to make her home first in New Mexico and later in Colorado. She gave up photography for many years lamenting her inability to visually capture the extraordinary beauty and peace she experienced in these places.
It wasn’t until she began traveling with her children that she realized it wasn’t about the beauty of the place or the presence of people but rather the interaction between the two that so intrigued her.
Tracy captures intimate, joyful, and reflective moments amidst the beauty of nature and other historic havens.
