Website - ChrisVerene.com

Chris Verene has been photographing three generations of his family, since 1984, in Galesburg, Illinois, a small town in the Midwest. Verene has been called a natural storyteller, focusing on the whole intimate truth of human narratives. His work is in numerous major museum collections, and in 2001, was the first photographer to receive a Pollock-Krasner Fellowship. He has been published in several books, including his 2000 self-titled monograph by Twin Palms Press, and a Phaidon photography history entitled, Theater of the Face, Portrait Photography Since 1900. Verene is also a filmmaker, performance artist, and musician. ARTFORUM praised Verene as "depicting people with a combination of respect and clarity." His new photography book, Family, will accompany solo exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe from 2010-13. Verene is represented by Postmasters Gallery in New York City.
