James Welling

Year and place of birth: 1951, Hartford, USA Location: Los Angeles, USA

James Welling is one of the most innovative visual artists in the world working with photography. He draws on all the technical possibilities that the medium has to offer him, with both digital and analogue processes. In doing so, the artist traverses traditional genres and styles, such as portrait, landscape, abstraction and documentary; additionally he involves other artistic disciplines such as painting, architecture, sculpture and dance. Often, autobiographical material forms the starting point for new projects, whether or not it comes from his immediate surroundings.
