The exhibition features large scale photographs and videos evoking human struggles in the harsh and unforgiving, yet sublime, natural world. This body of work was created in disparate locations including the Arctic territory of Spitsbergen and the American West as well in more ordinary places such as New York City and Los Angeles. Referencing the Romantic movement in art and literature, the work attests to both the fear and longing nature inspires. Kevin Cooley is primarily a photo and video artist who does freelance assignment work as well.

Cooley lives and works in Brooklyn, New York with his wife and often times collaborator Bridget Batch. Educated at the Lewis and Clark College, Portland, Oregon where he got his degree in International Affairs in 1977 and the School of Visual Arts , New York, where he obtained his M.F.A. in Photography in 2000, Cooley has hardly paused for breath. Amongst his commercial clients are Architectural Record, Art and Auction , Bloomberg Businessweek, Cisco Systems, CitiGroup, Conde Nast Portfolio, Esquire , Forbes, Fortune, GQ, Harper’s BAZAAR Australia, HSBC Premier, Life, Marie Claire, Men’s Health, Newsweek, The New York Times Magazine, Random House, Sony, Time , UPS, Wired Magazine and XXL Magazine.
