Rachel Brennecke is an American-born artist who received her BFA from The Rietveld Academie in The Netherlands. She currently works in New York, creating vibrant still and motion content while in studio or on location.

Her background is steeped in the fine art world; performing at The Museum of Modern Art for Marina Abramovic's historical retrospective 'The Artist is Present', for artist Vanessa Beecroft's installation 'VB64' at Deitch Projects, and for Performa 09. Her mentors have included Gilles Bensimon, Mark Seliger, Peter Beard, and Niles Rodgers.

Rachel’s work has been published in Cosmopolitan, Elle, Violet Book, Ladygunn, Galore, Creem, The Daily, Vice, and on Vogue, i-D, Harper's Bazaar, and Marie Claire.com. Her first photo book Americana Girl was released at Printed Matter's PS1 Art Book Fair in September 2016, and work from Americana Girl was selected and printed in AI/AP's 2017 hardcover annual American Photography 33.
