Ken Botto

Rather than taking the camera into the real environment of landscapes and household interiors, Ken Botto resorts to staged tableaux of his own making. Using toys, props and other miniature domestic objects, he fabricates and photographs worlds that reveal much of how we view our cultural identity. Botto received his B.F.A. from the California College of Arts and Crafts and his M.F.A. from the Claremont Graduate School. His color photography has exhibited in New York, Chicago and Paris, and is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
