Biography from Catherine Edelman Gallery:
Richard Misrach (b. Los Angeles, California 1949-)

Whether photographing a flooded town, a desert fire, an abandoned nuclear test site or the colors on the horizon emanating from a small town miles away, Richard Misrach draws the viewer into his world through his mastery of color.  Ranging from beautiful lakes to secret military bunkers to speed racing on the Utah salt flats, Misrach's work chronicles mans involvement in the desert, while always paying homage to the intrinsic beauty provided by nature.  It's through beauty that Misrach's social concerns are most revealed.  By pulling the viewer into a glowing light or calm body of water, he presents situations which leave us asking questions about the American desert -- a desert which continues to heal and revive itself regardless of mans actions.

Richard Misrach's work has been exhibited throughout the world and is included in most museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art [New York], Museum of Modern Art [New York], Center National d'Art at de Culture Georges Pompidou [Paris], National Museum of American Art [Washington, DC] and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art [Japan].
