Ally Christmas is a visual artist currently living and working out of Grinnell, IA. Much of her work revolves around notions of selfhood, virtuality, and lived experience, and her hybrid practice involves a number of forms including digital video, still photography, tintypes, palladium prints, bookmaking, gifs, cinemagraphs, and installation. After earning her BA in Photography from the University of Virginia in 2013, Christmas worked at the school for another year as a recipient of the 5th Year Aunspaugh Fellowship. She is an active member of the Society for Photographic Education, from whom she received a Graduate Student Award in 2017 to attend their national conference. In 2018, Christmas received her MFA in Photo/Video from the University of Georgia, and she is currently teaching video art and photography courses at Grinnell College as the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Studio Art.

Other fun facts: She loves taking long walks with her dogs Dresden & Murphy, everything Twin Peaks, sparkling water, and reading every book she can get her hands on.
