Victoria Sambunaris received her MFA from Yale University in 1999. Each year, she structures her life around a photographic journey crossing the American landscape. Her most recent project has been working in South Texas photographing the intersection of geology, industry and culture encompassing the international boundary and energy industry. She is a recipient of the 2010 Aaron Siskind Foundation Individual Photographer’s Fellowship and the 2010 Anonymous Was a Woman Award. In 2011, a twelve-year survey of her work was exhibited at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York, the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, and is currently at the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. Her work is held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the National Gallery of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Lannan Foundation. Radius Books recently published her first monograph, Taxonomy of a Landscape, released April 2014. Victoria Sambunaris is represented by Yancey Richardson Gallery and James Kelly Contemporary.

This lecture is free and open to the general public.
