Chie Nishio studied photojournalism at the Toko Sogo Photo School, graduating in 1963. She became a freelance editorial and documentary photographer and did photo essays on a variety of subjects, such as: coal mining, a fishing village, the new settlement in Hokkaido, and social problems in Tokyo. In 1964, she covered the Tokyo Olympics for Associated Press. In 1967, she visited the People's Republic of China during the Cultural Revolution and took photographs for the Associated Press that were published in newspapers worldwide. In 1970, she began photographing Native Americans, initially at the Sioux Reservations of the Dakotas, and later among the Pueblos of New Mexico. Her work has appeared in numerous solo and group shows around the world.
