Ian van Coller was born in 1970, in Johannesburg, South Africa, and grew up in the country during a time of great political turmoil. His work has addressed complex cultural issues of both the apartheid and post-apartheid eras, especially with regards to cultural identity in the face of globalization, and the economic realities of every day life. Van Coller received a National Diploma in Photography from Technikon Natal in Durban, and in 1992 he moved to the United States to pursue his studies where he received a BFA from Arizona State University, and an MFA from The University of New Mexico. His work has been widely exhibited in the United States and South Africa, including 19 solo exhibitions and over 60 group exhibitions, and is included in many significant museum collections. Van Coller is represented by Lisa Sette Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona, Schneider Gallery in Chicago, Illinois, and JDC Fine Art in San Diego. He lives in Bozeman, Montana and is an Associate Professor of Photography at Montana State University.
