Dale Niles was born in Norfolk, Virginia, raised in small North Carolina towns, and currently lives in Fayette County, Georgia. "My dad was a civil engineer who specialized in bridge construction so we always lived near the shore, Virginia Beach, Baltimore, and Manteo, North Carolina." In her photography, Niles looks to "create a legacy of all the sacred and beautiful things that I am privileged to experience in my time here." Work from her series Solidifying Roots was chosen by juror Sam Barzilay to be included in our annual Portfolio exhibition.
