Born in 1949, Richard Misrach received his BA in psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. He first saw photography as a means to social change, an ideology evident in his first major photographic project, Telegraph 3AM which documented Berkeley’s homeless population. Misrach’s work is represented in over fifty institutional collections, including that of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris. His photographs have also been exhibited worldwide, including his first major retrospective, a touring exhibition organized in 1997 by ihe Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
