Jerry Spagnoli


Jerry Spagnoli lives and works in New York City He is currently working on several projects including two ongoing historical documentation series, “Local Stories” and “The Last Great Daguerreian Survey of the Twentieth Century”. The common thread among all his projects is the exploration of the interplay between information and knowledge.  Taking the camera and photosensitive materials as the traditional standard for objectivity Spagnoli explores the ways that subjectivity is the inevitable basis of all knowledge.  His work is held in the collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, The National Portrait Gallery, The Fogg Museum,  The Museum of Modern Art, The Chrystler Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, The High Museum, The New York Historical Society and other major collections.
