°1969, Miami (US) – lives and works in New York (US)
Roe Ethridge ranks alongside Christopher Williams and Philipp-Lorca DiCorcia as one of the most interesting representatives of new American art photography. In his work, Ethridge combines editorial commissions with personal photographs of his direct experience of the world, ignoring the conceits that divide photography into fine art and commercial work. With this democratic attitude, Ethridge is interested in capturing the vivid and intimate details of his shifting locales within photography’s classic genres of portrait, landscape, and still life.
