American photographer Philip-Lorca diCorcia is well known for his dramatically lit slices of life, orchestrated portraits and contemporary takes on the vanitas theme. In 1990, he began a series of photographs of hustlers and came to prominence in 1993 with a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Later series such as ‘Streetwork’, ‘Heads’ and ‘A Storybook Life’ often played with powerful strobe lights placed discreetly in public places during the daytime. Using photography as a fictive medium and creating complex realities, diCorcia elaborates uncanny compositions which lay between documentary and theatrically staged photography. Works by diCorcia are held in international public collections, including the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Cincinnati Art Museum, Ohio; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Milwaukee Art Museum, Wisconsin; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum De Pont, Tilburg, The Netherlands; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Tate Gallery, London; Victoria & Albert Museum, London and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. He lives and works in New York, and serves as Senior Critic at Yale University.
