Interesting Photographers

James Casebere:

James Casebere is a photographer that works with simple and, sometimes, complex table-top models for almost 40 years. When he started in 1975, most of his works were models made of various paper materials and other miscellaneous materials, and taken in Black and White. However, if you were to look at his more recent works, there are some in colour and many other different materials are now included into his work.

“Casebere [has] three fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, three from the New York Foundation for the Arts and one from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. His work has been collected by museums worldwide, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Los Angeles County Museum, the Victoria and Albert and Tate Museums in London, among many others.” (jamescasebere.com)
