Coreen Simpson’s illustrious career began as a photojournalist covering political dignitaries, cultural icons, musicians, athletes and special events in New York, the Middle East, Africa and Europe. Ms. Simpson became one of a handful of female photographers on regular assignment covering the Fashion Collections in Paris and New York. Her images have appeared in Vogue, Essence, Ms. Magazine, Paris Match, The New York Times, The Village Voice and numerous books and periodicals.
Concurrently, she started taking photographs for herself—documenting people whose style she was drawn to on and off the street. While developing her visual language and unique portraiture, her work came to the attention of international curators. She is presently in the permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art, The Bronx Museum, Le Musee De La Photographie (Belgium) and The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, among others. Danny Glover and Spike Lee are among her private collectors.
