Talia Chetrit (American, b. 1982) lives and works in New York. Chetrit’s career has been an ongoing exploration of what remains hidden in the practice and mechanisms of photography. Her works make frequent use of isolation, obscuration and distortion, such that her subjects become abstracted and not immediately recognizable. She also inverts conventions of positive and negative space, horizontal and vertical orientation; these extreme effects are not the outcome of post-production processes, but are actually the product of a skillful technical grasp of the medium. There is often an detectable psychological or intimate narrative underpinning the works. She received her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2008 and previously earned her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
