Edie Bresler combines photography with chance and randomness to explore fragility and resilience. She combines a broad range of photographic approaches with sewing, found objects, and has completed several community participatory projects. Her social documentary project, We Sold A Winner follows the trail of winning lottery jackpots back to the mom and pop stores where the ticket was sold. Bresler spent almost ten years traveling across the US to compile these stories.

Her projects have been featured on Good Morning America, PBS Greater Boston, Photograph Magazine, Lenscratch, Slate, Esquire, Photo District News, Business Insider, and other publications.

Bresler is a recipient of a Massachusetts Cultural Council fellowship, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, numerous awards from the Somerville Arts Council, and a Berkshire Taconic Resource Arts grant.

Her photographs are in the permanent collections of the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the Danforth Museum of Art and Polaroid Corporation. She is represented by Gallery Kayafas in Boston, and is director of the photography program at Simmons University.
