1941 · United States
One of the most influential photographers of his generation, American artist Arthur Taussig’s works today are renowned for their chronicling of pieces of the country’s past.
Born in Los Angeles in 1941, Taussig first earned a degree in Physics at the University of California – Berkeley, but while he was studying the sciences he also upheld his parallel passions for music and anthropology. It was not until his mid-twenties that Taussig would begin his work with a camera, and from that point his career grew exponentially.
By the time he was awarded the National Endowment of the Arts Visual Artist’s Grant in 1982, Taussig’s work had already been featured in hundreds of exhibitions.
