Ron Amato is a Professor of Photography and Related Media at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Much of Ron’s work centers on issues of sexual identity. His seminal show of intimate self-portraits at Richard Anderson Fine Arts in NYC in 2000 earned Ron a reputation for his frank portrayal of the sexual dynamic between men. In 2016 Ron published his first monograph, The Box, which continued his exploration of these themes. The photo series and book garnered worldwide praise and won an American Photographic Artists Award for Outstanding Photography Series. Since 2015 Ron has been making artist portraits in Provincetown, Mass. An exhibition of his Artists of Provincetown series at Provincetown Art Association and Museum is scheduled for 2022.
