Sean Perry

Full Time Faculty

Sean Perry is a fine-art photographer living and working in New York City and Austin, Texas. His photographs and books center on architecture, space and light – the ambiance felt within built environments. He is currently completing three series on New York City entitled Monolith, Gotham and Fotopolis.

Perry’s photographs and books have been acquired by notable private collectors, including Manfred Heiting and Alan Siegel, in addition to being held in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Amon Carter Museum, the Wittliff Collections and the Harry Ransom Center. He has been published and exhibited widely, including commissions for the New York Times Sunday Magazine, Billboard and New York Magazine, as well as featured by American Photography, Graphis, Creative Quarterly, Elizabeth Avedon Journal and L’Oeil de la Photographie.

Cloverleaf Press published Perry’s first limited edition book, Transitory in 2006, and followed with a second title, Fairgrounds in the Fall of 2008. Both were a featured case study in Publish Your Photography Book coauthored by Mary Virginia Swanson & Darius Himes (Princeton Architectural Press, 2011). Perry was also selected as a finalist for the Hasselblad Masters award for his photographs and book Fairgrounds.

He has served as an adjunct Professor of Photography for Austin Community College since 2001 as well as an adjunct Professor for the School of Visual Arts in New York City since 2006. He attended Berklee College of Music and was a working musician before turning to photography in 1996.

Perry’s work is represented by the Stephen L. Clark Gallery.
