His work has been widely exhibited, including solo shows at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Art, the Musee de la Lausanne Photographie in Belgium and the Musee de l’Elysee in Switzerland, amongst others. He shows in galleries regularly in New York, Los Angeles and Paris, France. He has been awarded two Guggenheim Fellowships in 1976 and 1979 and two National Endowment for the Arts, Individual Photography Fellowships in 1978 and 1986. His commercial work includes advertising campaigns for Smirnoff, Bacardi and Cunard Lines (Q.E.2). He is professor of photography at Bard College.

The Conrad Nelson Artist-In-Residence Fellowship was established in 2000 by MU alum Conrad Nelson to enable the University to bring to campus accomplished visual artists working in various media, to display and describe their works, to give public lectures on issues in the arts and to interact with students, faculty and other members of the greater Millersville community.
