Internationally known photographic artist Jock Sturges has
been recognized for his luscious black and white photographs of
people. His controversial photographs on naturist beaches in the
south of France, in the communes of northern California, and the
summer resort of Black Island, has captured national attention.
Using an 8x10 camera, he reveals the relationship of the people
in his life with their inner self. The images are a collaboration
of trust and admiration between artist and subject. Sturges received
a B.A. in Perceptual Psychology and Photography from Marlboro College
in Vermont and an M.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute. He
has exhibited widely in the United States as well as in France and
Japan. His photographs are in the collections of the Museum of Modern
Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Bibliotheque
Nationale in Paris, among others. Jock has exhibited twice at Benham
Gallery as of November 1999.
The Benham Gallery has available a limited number of prints by Jock
Sturges. We believe art is best sold on a one-to-one basis and will
generally provide any reasonable information about the arist, including
the artist's resume, background, and the availability of books and
prints for sale. The Benham Gallery accepts most major payment types
and transactions can be carried out by e-mail, phone, mail, or better
yet - by stopping by in person so we can familiarize you with the
the work. The pictures on this site are no match compared to seeing
the real thing in person..
