About Colin Edgington
Colin Edgington is a visual artist and writer currently living and working in Phillipsburg, NJ. He was born in Denver, Colorado but grew up in Central New Mexico, a place that has shaped (and continues to shape) his understanding of the world. His work investigates notions (and contradictions) of site, distance and place while challenging prevailing notions of photographic truth, authorship and the photograph as a mediator of experience and knowledge. His work has been exhibited internationally and published widely, most recently in The Iowa Review, a result of his selection as winner of the Iowa Review Photography Prize. He has written for Exposure: The Journal of the Society for Photographic Education, Afterimage: The Journal of Media Arts and Cultural Criticism and Fraction Magazine. He holds a BAFA from the University of New Mexico and an MFA from the Mason Gross School of Arts, Rutgers University. He currently teaches photography at several colleges and universities in the tri-state area.
