Jock Sturges was born in New York City in 1947. His large format images of families in Northern California counter-cultural communities, Ireland, and naturist beaches in France borrow significantly from classical periods in both photography and nineteenth and early twentieth century painting. Represented by twenty-six galleries in eleven countries, Sturges’ work can also be found in the collections of many of the world’s museums including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, and the Frankfurt Museum of Modern Art in Germany. He has nine published monographs to his name, including, Misty Dawn: Portrait of a Muse (Aperture, 2008) and Jock Sturges: Life Times (Steidl Verlag 2008). He currently lives in Seattle, Washington.”
