Richard Misrach

Richard Misrach (born 1949) is an American photographer. He is widely recognised as “one of this century’s most internationally acclaimed photographers. He has photographed the deserts of the American West, and made a series documenting the changes brought to bear on the environment by various man-made factors such as urban sprawl, tourism, industrialisation, floods, fires, petrochemical manufacturing, and the testing of explosives and nuclear weapons by the military. Curator Anne Wilkes Tucker writes that Richard Misrach’s practice has been “driven [by] issues of aesthetics, politics, ecology, and sociology.

Misrach’s first major photography project, completed in 1974, depicted homeless residents of Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, California. This suite of photographs was shown at the International Center of Photography and published as a book, Telegraph 3 AM, which won a Western Book Award in 1975.
