Chad Ress, born in Kentucky, currently lives in Los Angeles. His imagery is landscape based with a focus on the social forces that shape these physical spaces. His project America Recovered - A Survery of the ARRA documents the stimulus bill of 2009 by combining his images with text provided by the government. It was accepted to Center / Review Santa Fe; awarded distinction by The Forward Thinking Museum; and recently published in both Time Magazine's Lightbox and The Wall Street Journal. Ress is currently a Katz fellow with Arizona State University and the Center for Social Cohesion, in conjunction with the New America Foundation. He is creating an archive of images documenting where Americans go, outside of work and home, to find a sense of community and connection to place.
