Kimberly Witham is an artist and educator who currently resides in Glen Gardner. Her lush and evocative photographs are strongly influenced by her studies in art history and her interest in the natural world. Since moving to New Jersey in 2006, she has focused her work on the relationship between humans and wildlife. Her still life images include road kill animals, yard sale items, and flowers and fruit (often grown in the artist’s own garden).

Her work has been featured in Color Magazine, PHOTO+, BLOW photo, The Photo Review, BLINK, Foto, Orion, The New Republic, and Wired (online) and has been used as cover illustration for books in the US and France. In 2016, National Geographic created a short film about Witham’s studio practice titled “Making Roadkill Into Art.” She has won awards and grants including the Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Award, a fellowship at the Center for Emerging Visual Artists, the Clarence John Laughlin Award, and the Lindback Distinguished teaching award. In 2023, Witham received a New Jersey State Council on the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad and is held in both museums and private collections. Witham is a Professor of Photography at Bucks County Community College.  She is represented by galleries in Brooklyn, New Orleans, Boston, Memphis, and Provincetown, MA.
