Allan Sekula was an American photographer, writer, critic and filmmaker. Born in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1951, he lived most of his life in Los Angeles and the surrounding regions of southern California.
Elizabeth Moran lives and works in San Francisco. She received her BFA in Photography and Imaging at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in New York and her MFA at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Her work is directed by a preoccupation with evidence of unknown or little understood histories. While her work is primarily image-based, it has also taken the form of other media such as text, mixed-media, and books.
Moran’s work has been presented both nationally and globally, including with SOMArts in San Francisco, RAC Gallery in New York, Fotofest in Houston, tête in Berlin, and 72 Gallery in Tokyo. Her work has been published in HotShoe, Paper Journal, New York Magazine, Marie Claire South Africa, and Wired, among others. Moran was awarded a Murphy and Cadogan Fellowship in 2012 and a Tierney Fellowship in 2013 and was named one of the winners of Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward (US) for 2013.
