Pushing the Lens: Conceptual Practices in Photography

Ken Gonzales-Day is known for his acclaimed series of photographs, Hang
Trees and Erased Lynching, both of which address historical erasure and its
relationship to photography.  In both sets of photographs the body is
implied through its absence. Gonzales-Day's work additionally demonstrates a
continued interest in the nature of western landscape photography.

Fellowships include the Whitney Museum of American Art, ISP and the Getty
Research Institute in Los Angeles.  He has had solo exhibitions at Palais de
Tokyo, Paris and LAXART, Los Angeles and has participated in group
exhibitions at LACMA, the Generali Foundation in Vienna and FotoLatina,
Museo de las Artes, in Mexico City;

Ken Gonzales-Day received his MFA from UC Irvine.  He lives in Los Angeles
and is a Professor at Scripps College.
