Biography

Associated with The Pictures Generation that emerged in the 1980s, James Casebere is known for his constructed photographs that explore aspects of private, public, and historical architectural space. For the past 30 years, he has created complex tabletop models of plaster, Styrofoam, and cardboard in his studio before carefully lighting and photographing his assemblages. Casebere's subjects have included prisons, slavery-era cotton mills, and, in the series "Landscape with Houses" (2009-2011), American ideas of home, via a re-creation of an upstate New York subdivision.
