Aug 24, 2023



Artist and 2023 Guggenheim Fellow Shane Rocheleau will visit Utah State University, August 30. He will discuss his photographic practice and current Guggenheim project at 12:30p.m. during Professor Jared Ragland’s Analog Photography course in FAV113 of USU’s Chase Fine Arts Building.

The visit is presented by the Caine College of the Arts’ Department of Art + Design and USU Photo.

Shane Rocheleau (MFA, VCU) is an American photographer whose work critically explores American mythology, failures of the American project, and our collective need to see each other with empathy and compassion. Rocheleau’s three monographs – You Are Masters Of The Fish And Birds And All The Animals (2018), The Reflection In The Pool (2019), and Lakeside (2022) – are published by Gnomic Book and collected by the Museum of Modern Art, the Vogue Italia Collection, and Tate Britain, among others, and is included in the USU Photobook Special Collection. Rocheleau is a 2023 Guggenheim Fellow and currently lives and works in Richmond, Virginia.

Following Shane’s visit to campus, he and professor Jared Ragland will embark on a week-long research trip through the Great Basin in Utah and Nevada, tracing the route of the ill-fated Donner Party.
