Philip-Lorca diCorcia

DiCorcia is often acknowledged as one of the most influential photographers of his generation, and his work is frequently shown alongside that of his peers in exhibitions addressing our cultural zeitgeist. At the beginning of his career in the late 1970s, diCorcia situated his friends and family within fictional interior tableaus. He later shifted his attention outward, photographing strangers in urban spaces—Berlin, Calcutta, Hollywood, New York, Rome, Tokyo—and infused the pictures with supplementary lighting to achieve a sense of heightened drama. Each of his series, “Hustlers,” “Streetwork,” “Heads,” “A Storybook Life,” and “Lucky Thirteen,” can be considered progressive explorations of diCorcia’s formal and conceptual fields of interest.
 
 
 
DiCorcia has received numerous awards and honors throughout his career, including grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. In 2001, diCorcia won the Infinity Award for Applied Photography from the International Center of Photography in New York
