Jesse Burke's work addresses themes related to vulnerability and identity, as well as human's complicated relationship with nature. He is drawn to moments where a rupture or wound is physically, emotionally, or metaphorically inflicted. Burke received a BFA from the University of Arizona and an MFA from RISD, where he currently teaches. His first monograph, Intertidal, was published by Decode Books in 2008. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in the U.S. and abroad including The Haggerty Museum, the Perth Center for Photography, the Tucson Museum of Art, the Print Center in Philadelphia and the Lishui Photo Festival in China and is in many private and public collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
