Chicago based photographer Brad Temkin (American, b.1956) has been documenting the human impact on the contemporary landscape for most of his career. Brad believes that in spite of ourselves, humanity continues to stumble into grace. He celebrates this by focusing on what we leave behind, be they objects in the landscape, or the integration of architecture & landscape / infrastructure & environment. Brad has exhibited his photographs throughout the United States and abroad, and is part of several permanent collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, Milwaukee Art Museum, Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Akron Art Museum and Museum of Contemporary Photography among others. Temkin's images have also appeared in such publications as Aperture, Black & White Magazine, China Photo, TIME Magazine and European Photography. A monograph of Temkin's work, Private Places: Photographs of Chicago Gardens, was published in 2005. He teaches at Columbia College Chicago.
