During a distinguished career spanning over twenty-five years, Norman Mauskopf has had three award-winning photographic books. Norman's first book, Rodeo, peers into the lives of professional rodeo cowboys. Author Ben Maddow writes that Rodeo’s images "are not merely photographs but observations deeply seen and deeply felt... Mauskopf has uncovered something profound and instinctive." His second book, Dark Horses, documents the world of thoroughbred horseracing and was described as "classic photojournalism slyly refracted through prisms of drama, majesty and humor.” His third book, A Time Not Here, focuses on African-American musical and spiritual traditions in Mississippi, and was described as "a focused documentary of astonishing beauty." Descendants, Mauskopf’s most recent publication, focuses on the Hispanic culture of northern New Mexico and includes the poem Singing at the Gates by Jimmy Santiago Baca. Norman has also completed a rare, unpublished documentary portfolio of portraits in a legal brothel in Nevada.
Norman's photographs have been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including two shows at the International Festival of Photojournalism in Perpignan, France. In addition to working on his own projects, Norman has photographed assignments for numerous magazine and corporate clients, and he has worked as an educator for over twenty-five years.
