Gregory Halpern

Gregory’s unerring eye for beauty is focused on its contradictions and unlikely occurrences. Known for his artist’s books, Gregory enjoys taking us into another world, to get lost in pictures. He likes to explore, to find places he doesn’t know.

Gregory’s work is led by aesthetics, even when his subject matter is challenging. A study of working conditions for janitorial staff at Harvard, created while he was a student there, resulted in a successful bid for the minimum wage. His images of life in post-industrial towns of the American Rust Belt were published to critical acclaim in A (2011), and again show resilience in the face of harsh social and economic realities. But the common thread in his work is the discovery of something visually arresting, extraordinary – and he draws our attention to these tensions by placing them within a frame.

Gregory’s most recent project, ZZYZX, turns towards the sunshine city of LA, where his preference for natural light and a directness of gaze is reflected in images full of optimism. For this work he has received a 2014 Guggenheim Fellowship.

Gregory Halpern was born in 1977 and grew up in Buffalo, NY.  Following a BA in History and Literature at Harvard University (1999) he gained an MFA in Photography from California College of the Arts, San Francisco (2004). 

His photographic projects have been published as Harvard Works Because We Do (W.W. Norton/ Quantuck Lane Press, 2003); Omaha Sketchbook (Artist’s Books/ J&L Books, 2009) and A (J&L Books, 2011); East of The Sun, West of the Moon (Etudes, 2014), ZZYZX (MACK, 2016); in addition he has been included in several surveys and in 2014 Aperture published The Photographer’s Playbook: Over 250 Assignments and Ideas, which Gregory has co-edited.

Gregory has had solo exhibitions at Galerie Wouter van Leeuween, Amsterdam (2012); Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Harvard University (2012, 2006 and 2003); Clamp Art, New York (2012); Primary Gallery, New York (2011), Polyester Gallery, Omaha (2010); SF Camerawork, San Francisco (2007); and The San Francisco Foundation (2005).

In 2013 he was included in ‘Unseen’ at Foam Magazine Photo Fair, Amsterdam; previously his work has been included in ‘PhotoForum 2012’ at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; ‘VICE Photo Show at the Black and White Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; the Biennale de Lyon (2010); and many more.

Gregory is based in New York.
