Clifford Ross is a multimedia artist who began his career as a painter and sculptor after graduating from Yale University in 1974. In the mid-1990s, Ross became interested in photography, beginning his well-known Hurricane series and pioneering breakthrough techniques. In 2002, Ross invented and patented the revolutionary R1 camera, which allowed him to produce some of the highest resolution, large-scale landscape photographs in the world. His work has been the subject of international museum exhibitions and can be found in numerous public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the J. Paul Getty Museum. Recent collaborations include his computer-animated video “Harmonium Mountain I,” featuring an original score by Philip Glass, multi-screen concert presentations with live music by the Orchestra of St. Lukes, Real Estate, and Cibbo Matto, and an LED wall video installation at the 92nd Street Y for an all-Beethoven concert with violinist Julian Rachlin. A major survey of Ross's work, "Landscape Seen & Imagined," was recently on view at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts. In conjunction with the exhibition, MIT Press published two companion books: "Hurricane Waves" and "Seen & Imagined: The World of Clifford Ross."
