Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible Ocula Report Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible 17 Apr 2019 : Federica Bueti for Ocula

Philip-Lorca diCorcia is one of the most influential and innovative photographers working today. Born in 1953 in Connecticut, United States, he studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston from 1975-1976 and received his Master of Fine Arts from Yale University in 1979. In 2001, diCorcia was awarded with the Infinity Award for Applied Photography from the International Center of Photography in New York, and in 1998 he received the Alfred Eisenstaedt Award from Columbia University. He received Artist Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts in the United States in 1989, 1986 and 1980. More recently, he was named one of Martell's 2012 Artists of the Year, which was accompanied by a touring exhibition in China.

diCorcia creates images at the intersection of documentary and theatrically staged photography, infusing seemingly insignificant gestures with psychology and emotion and forcing the viewer to decipher between fact and fiction. He lives and works in New York and teaches at Yale University.
