Description of Talk: Photographer Thomas Locke Hobbs will discuss his work from the last decade focusing primarily on work made in South America examining the intersections of place, identity, landscape and the marks left on them by economic, cultural and idealogical structures. Deeply engaged with the history of the medium, his work attempts to form a lyrical and analytical response to his surroundings that incorporates critique but also transcends it.

In 2015 he received an MFA in photography from Arizona State University. He has exhibited work in Buenos Aires, Cuzco, Lima, London and Phoenix. He currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
