Bill Bamberger

Lecturing Fellow

Bill Bamberger’s work explores large cultural and social issues of our time: the demise of the American factory, housing in America, adolescents coming of age in an inner-city high school. His book with Cathy N. Davidson, Closing: The Life and Death of an American Factory, won the Mayflower Prize in Nonfiction and was a semifinalist for the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award. His photographs have appeared in Aperture, DoubleTake, Harper’s, the Washington Post Magazine, Fortune, and the New York Times Magazine. Bamberger has had one-person exhibitions at the Yale University Art Gallery, the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History, the North Carolina Museum of Art, and the National Building Museum. A trademark of Bamberger’s exhibitions is that they are first shown in the community where he has chosen to photograph, prior to their museum premier.
