Sean Hemmerle - Photography
Sean Hemmerle is a New York based photographer whose work ranges from international conflict zones to shuttered industrial towns in the US. His conflict images span ten years, 9/11 in New York, to Kabul, Baghdad, Gaza, Juarez, Cyprus, Belfast, and Beirut. Closer to home, Hemmerle has created photographic projects that reflect the pathos and poetry of American Rust Belt towns in Detroit, Pittsburgh, Gary, Troy, and Poughkeepsie. Hemmerle has exhibited nationally and internationally. His work can be found in public and private collections including the Museum of Modern Art, Houston Museum of Fine Arts, Martin Marguilles, Sir Elton John, and Brooks Brothers. Teaming with William Watson, Hemmerle received a Graham Foundation for Advances Studies in the Fine Arts grant in 2013. Collaborating with MASS Design, he received a National Endowment for the Arts grant in 2019. His images have been widely published, including The New York Times Magazine, Metropolis, and Time. His first monograph, "THEM", was published in 2018 by Kehrer Verlag.
