1968 (age 49–50)|
Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri
The photographs of Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison have been displayed in 18 solo exhibitions and over 30 group shows worldwide. Their work can also be found in over 20 collections, including the National Museum of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution and the George Eastman House.
My photographs tell stories of loss, human struggle, and personal exploration within landscapes scarred by technology and over-use…. [I] strive to metaphorically and poetically link laborious actions, idiosyncratic rituals and strangely crude machines into tales about our modern experience. —Robert ParkeHarrison
Many of his images are of ParkeHarrison himself, in costume and interacting with specific scenes, objects, and landscapes. Due to this aspect of performance in the images, they can be viewed as part stand-alone photographs, part documents of a singular instance of performance art.
