Tria Giovan
(American, b. 1961) was born in Chicago and raised on the island of St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. With a career as a photographer that has spanned a wide range of subject matter, Giovan’s images have been published in numerous magazines including Esquire, Coastal Living, ESPN Sports, Travel & Leisure, and House Beautiful. Giovan’s fine art photography is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York Public Library, and the Jewish Museum, NY; the Brooklyn Museum of Art; and the Parrish Art Museum. She has received many grants and awards including the Tokyo International Foto Awards, International Photography Awards, and Artist Space-Exhibition Award, among others. Giovan currently lives and works in New York City and Sag Harbor, NY.

After studying archeology and art history, Thomas Hoepker (German, b. 1936) worked as a photographer and photo-reporter for magazines including Muenchner Illustrierte, Kristall, and Stern. His work with these publications enabled him to travel around the globe to Brazil, China, Cuba, Ethiopia, Greece, Peru, the U.S., and other countries. Hoepker became a member of Magnum Photos in 1989 and served as its president from 2003 to 2006. In 2005, the Foto Museum in Munich presented a retrospective of 230 of his photographs that traveled throughout Germany and across Europe. Hoepker is based in New York City and Southampton, NY.

Best known for his photographic books, Ralph Gibson (American, b. 1939) has published more than 40 monographs beginning with the landmark publication SOMNAMBULIST (1970). His images often incorporate erotic and mysterious undertones, building narrative meaning through contextualization and surreal juxtaposition. Recently, Gibson began to incorporate photographs and musical compositions into film and live performances at New York’s Roulette and The Stone, among other venues, and in 2010 he collaborated with Lou Reed on the film Red Shirley. Gibson’s work, featured in more than 170 museum collections worldwide, has been the subject of hundreds of solo exhibitions, including the retrospective Quartet at The High Museum of Art, Atlanta (2012). Awards include fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, the Leica Medal of Excellence, the Lucie Lifetime Award, and the Silver Plumb Award, Guild Hall Academy of the Arts Lifetime Artist Achievement Award (2015), and Palm Springs Fine Art Festival Photographer of the Year Award (2016). Gibson is a Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of France.

 

Artists Choose Artists is the Parrish Art Museum’s triennial exhibition that highlights the dynamic relationships among the multi-generational artist community of Long Island’s East End, encouraging mentorship and conversations between artists at varying stages in their careers.
