About the artist

Walead Beshty

Walead Beshty, born 1976, is an American artist working primarily in photography and sculpture, as well as in the field of academia.  Best known for his large scale photograms, Beshty is interested in how slight variations and manipulations of the camera, whether through exposure or color processing, can drastically affect the outcome of the image he is creating.  While photography is a medium known for its ability to capture reality, Beshty creates his own use of the medium and challenges its inherent documentary form.  The titles of Beshty’s photograms are based on the procedure for how that particular work was made, grounding them to a physical process rather than completely abstract.  Some of Beshty’s best known works include his Phenomenology of Shopping photography series and FedEx sculpture series.  

Beshty attended Bard College for his BFA in studio art, and later Yale University for his MFA in photography.  His work has been exhibited internationally, and is held at prestigious collections like the Art Institute of Chicago, the Guggenheim Museum, New York, and Tate, London.  Beshty lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
