Norman MauskopfDuring a distinguished twenty-five year photography career Norman Mauskopf has had three award-winning books of his photographs published by Twin Palms/Twelvetrees Press, and has been the recipient of a W. Eugene Smith Fellowship. His most recent book, A Time Not Here, focuses on African-American musical and spiritual traditions in Mississippi and was described as "a focused documentary of astonishing beauty". His second book, Dark Horses, documents the world of thoroughbred horseracing and was described as "classic photojournalism slyly refracted through prisms of drama, majesty and humor." Norman's first book, Rodeo, looks into the lives of professional rodeo cowboys. About the images in Rodeo author Ben Maddow wrote, "they are not merely photographs but observations deeply seen and deeply felt... Mauskopf has uncovered something profound and instinctive." A forthcoming book will focus on the Latino culture of northern New Mexico and will include an original text by poet Jimmy Santiago Baca. Norman has also completed a rare documentary in the legal brothels of Mustang, Nevada.
Norman's photographs have been included in solo and group exhibitions including two shows at the International Festival of Photojournalism in Perpignan, France. In addition to working on his own projects, Norman has photographed assignments for numerous magazine and corporate clients, and he has been a photographic educator for over twenty-five years.
