Based on this project, Tiffany opened a solo exhibition, titled Eighty Years of Dust, which was on display at Fort Lee Public Library in New Jersey. Prior to Eighty Years of Dust, she worked on another project that centered around the same themes, although this time in an urban environment. 'A Neighborhood in Transition – Murals in Bedford-Stuyvesant' looked at the changes that have taken place in this once infamous Brooklyn neighborhood. Her images were featured in a highly publicized exhibit in Brooklyn’s Bedford Library and were published in A Magazine, a global publication, and the NY Daily News.
Tiffany's journey in editorial photo editing commenced in 2005 at LIFE Magazine. She has held significant roles, including Sunday Features Photo Editor at the NYPOST, Senior Online Photo Editor at ABC News, Photo Director at SheMedia, and Social Trends Photo Editor at People.com.

"To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”- Elliott Erwitt
