Nigel Poor is a fine art photographer, a professor at California State University, Sacramento, and a member of the Bay Area photo collective Library Candy. She explores the troubling questions of how to document life and what is worthy of preservation. Poor’s early work captured the various commonplace ways that individuals leave their marks on the world, including fingerprints, stains, human hair, and dryer lint. In 2011, Poor’s driving question, “what is worthy of preservation?” led her to San Quentin State Prison to teach classes on the history of photography for the Prison University Project.
