Ken Gonzales-Day lives and works in Los Angeles. He received an MFA from UC Irvine, and an MA in Art History from Hunter College (C.U.N.Y). His interdisciplinary and conceptually grounded projects consider the history of photography, the construction of race, and the limits of representational systems ranging from the lynching photograph to museum display. Searching for California Hang Trees series offered a critical look at the legacies of landscape photography in the West while his most recent project considers the origins of racial profiling.
