David Benjamin Sherry’s work challenges the established traditions of the American landscape genre, in particular exploring depictions of the American West. His large-scale photographs, rendered in vibrant monochromatic colour, offer an alternative to the hetero-male tradition. Sherry’s work exists at the boundary between the contemporary and the traditional. Using a traditional 8 x 10 inch camera his work expresses a concern for the rapidly changing landscape and the contemporary condition.
Sherry (born 1981) studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and Visual Art before graduating with an MFA in photography from Yale University in 2007. His work has been the subject of the monographs, It’s Time (2010); Quantum Light (2013); Earth Changes (2015); American Monuments (2015) and most recently Pink Genesis (2022). His photographs have been exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, PS1 MoMA, New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the International Center of Photography, New York, the de Young Museum, San Francisco, CA, Ballroom Marfa, Texas, and the Tucson Museum of Art, Arizona. His work is held in the permanent collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis, The Saatchi Collection, London, The Alfond Collection of Contemporary Art, Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Florida, and The Marciano Foundation, Los Angeles, CA.
