David Ricci is a self-taught fine art photographer who lives and works in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts. He has produced several bodies of work, many of them characterized by extremely complex formal structures that resonate with gesture, rhythm, and pattern. Art New England described him as “…very much the photographer’s photographer”.
Ricci has exhibited widely including solo exhibitions at the Fogg Museum, Art Complex Museum, Berkshire Museum, Iris Gallery, Panopticon Gallery, UMASS-Amherst and Brown University and group exhibitions at the DeCordova, Danforth and Fleming Museums and Rosenberg+Kaufman Gallery in New York City.
He was the recipient of the Annual Curator’s Award from The Center for Photographic Arts in California and was longlisted for the 2014 Aesthetica Prize in the UK. Ricci’s work is in several public collections including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Fogg Museum, Noyes Museum, Winnipeg Art Gallery, The Hyde Collection and Smith College Museum of Art.
His monograph, EDGE, will be published by Fall Line Press in Atlanta in 2021. The book will feature images spanning nearly forty years of the artist’s career and will include an essay by noted photographer and author Tim Davis, professor of photography at Bard College.
