Jock STURGES

Jock Sturges was born 1947 in New York. He studied at Marlboro College, and received his MFA in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute. Sturges is known for his photography of nudists and their families in Northern California and at French beaches amidst beautiful natural sceneries. Relying on an 8x10 inches large format camera, his monochrome and color prints earned him recognition for the cool beauty of the young girls portrayed, the loving affection shown among the family members, and his poetic sense of capturing nature.

His works are held in major collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MOMA, the Guggenheim Museum, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, or the Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt (MMK).

Publications include: The Last Days of Summer (Aperture, 1991); Radiant Identities (Aperture, 1994); Evolution of Grace (Gakken, 1994); Jock Sturges: New Work, 1996-2000 (Scalo, 2000); Jock Sturges: Notes (Aperture, 2004); Jock Sturges: Twenty-Five Years (Paul Cava Gallery, 2004).
