Jamey Stillings

Jamey Stillings earned a B.A. in art from Willamette University, Salem, Oregon, in 1978 and a M.F.A. in photography from Rochester Institute of Technology, New York, in 1982. His master’s thesis, Nicaragua: A Society in Transition, examined aspects of social change emerging from the Sandinista revolution of 1979. In the early 1980s, he entered the world of advertising, corporate, and editorial photography, where he worked on assignments for a wide range of national and international clients. In 2009, he initiated The Bridge at Hoover Dam project after encountering the evolving bridge during a photographic road trip in the Southwest. The New York Times Magazine published his initial work on that project in June 2009. Since then, the two-year project has been recognized with numerous awards, including the CENTER Editor’s Choice Award 2010 and Photolucida Critical Mass Book Award Finalist 2010. The Bridge at Hoover Dam was on exhibition at the Phoenix Art Museum in 2011 and will travel for the next several years. Nazraeli Press has just published a large format book of the work. Mr. Stillings’s new projects continue to examine the contemporary human-altered landscape and the evolving social, economic, and political issues such sites engender.

In 2007, she was awarded first prize by Ecocentro Buenos Aires for her piece Man and the Meeting with the Sea. Her work was selected to be one of the official opening exhibitions of Fotograma 09 in Montevideo, and she was chosen to participate in PHotoEspaña’s portfolio review in Lima in 2009.
