Roe Ethridge works in both editorial and fine art photography. Drawing upon the descriptive power of photography and the ease with which it can be accessed, duplicated and recombined, Ethridge orchestrates visual fugues in a constantly evolving visual sensibility that has spawned a myriad of copyists.
Ethridge, born in 1969 in Miami, Florida, lives and works in New York. His work has been shown extensively around the world, including MOMA/PS1 (2000), Barbican Center, London (2001), Carnegie Museum of Art (2002), Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (2005), The Whitney Biennial (2008), Museum of Modern Art, New York (2010), Les Recontres D’Arles, France (2011). Solo exhibitions include the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, Garage, Moscow, and Le Consortium, Dijon, France (curated by Anne Pontegnie). In 2011 he was shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.
