Scott Lerman creates photo-base images at the intersection of art and science, of nature and technology. Whether frozen by an array of ultra-high-speed strobes, stacked and stitched by a computational model, or captured by a hybrid of obsolete and cutting-edge technology. His (sometimes obsessive) curiosity about how mechanical, digital, and natural things work leads him to explore and experiment with hybrids of all three.
His work has been exhibited in a wide range of galleries, including Candela Books + Gallery, Richmond VA; The Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, CO; Darkroom Gallery, Essex Junction, VT; Garner Arts Center, West Haverstraw, NY; Kadoya Gallery, Pueblo, CO; and Soho Photo, New York, NY. He resides in Beacon, NY.
Lerman holds a BFA from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art.
The photograph above was made using a handmade Scancan™ constructed from a Rubbermaid garbage can, hacked Canon LiDE flatbed scanner and vintage large format lens. Scott also modifies early ultra-large-format cameras for his work.
