About the Artist:
Elliot Ross is a Taiwanese-American photographer based in Colorado. Ross’s practice is centered on human relationships with the land and is defined by an intimate connection with his subjects. Through his sprawling projects, Ross investigates how landscapes–both natural and artificial–shape community and culture. His ongoing works examine: relationships to water in the American West, how Indigenous communities on the frontlines of climate change are confronting a loss of home through self-determination, and how national borders both shape and divide identity. In 2019, Ross was named a National Geographic Explorer and currently serves as a Ted Scripps Fellow at the Center for Environmental Journalism and as a Fellow at The Center for Contemporary Documentation. He has published several books including American Backyard, and is a longtime contributor to National Geographic Magazine, TIME, The New Yorker and The New York Times.
