Victor Salvo, b. 1964, is currently a Maine based photographer. When asked who he shoots for, what with his two cameras slung around his neck, he shrugs, "I am an American Artist." He often photographs political events and weaseled past Trump's phalanx to produce a body of work on the tail end of the 2016 New Hampshire primaries.
Other collections include Wetland, a 20 year project on east coast fisheries and other coastal activities told in war story snippets, The Tale of the Plastic Slipper and Lekol Lakay which are notes on Haiti, Chasing Lenny which is about civil rights and the legacy of photographer Lenny Freed, and Beaver Damage: A Vermont Story chronicling the effects of tropical storm Irene with the writer Ken Hall.
This winter he completed a book about time spent last summer in Brazil and another chronicling the North American Cycle Courier Championships in NYC and the Boston to New York R2 Stage Race. Spring means a return to the Venice Biennale, this time with photos from last time in a work called No Place Like Home. The most recent showing is at Özlem Ayse Özgür's show, "X is for Xenophobia - I am America" with a photo of lily white Florida chickens in a black cage under the benevolent gaze of a Confederate flag.
