Manager, Art Guides
Kristie Nilsson began her career with an internship at the studio of photographer and photojournalist Eddie Adams, best known for his Pulitzer prize–winning 1968 photograph of the execution of a Viet Cong soldier. In addition to working as Adam’s assistant, she managed his archive and the syndication of his photographs.
Following stints as manager for a number of other photo studios, Nilsson was hired by Photo District News, a trade publication for professional photographers. During her 12 years with the magazine, she planned events such as PDN’s PhotoPlus Expo and the PDN Photo Annual before moving into a sales and marketing role. As an account executive and membership manager, she focused on PDN’s photography guides and promoted the work of a global network of professional photographers for PDN’s PhotoServe and the Independent Photography Network.
After leaving PDN, Nilsson spent several years fundraising for the International Center of Photography and Hudson Riverkeeper, organizations with missions that are close to her heart. She was hired by Art in America in 2017 as an account manager for the Art in America Guide to Museums, Galleries and Artists. She is inspired every day by her work with artists, editors, museums and galleries worldwide.
