American, b. 1966

Working on his own or on assignment for top publications, Sean Hemmerle focuses principally on architecture and urban landscapes in crisp, color photographs. He approaches these manmade structures and settlements with a keen eye for their distinctive formal qualities, as well as for the stories they convey about the people who have used, abandoned, or, sometimes, fought bitterly over them. He has captured war-affected Middle Eastern cities, luxury corporate headquarters in American cities, the changing face of Shanghai, and journalists at work in newsrooms. Hemmerle’s photographs provide a remarkably palpable sense of place; in one understated series, he shot isolated basketball nets in North America, Europe, and the Middle East, each set into markedly different surroundings, and altered by the affects of time.
