Garrett Grove (b. 1982, USA) is an artist and photographer who's work focuses on the tension
between modern demand and natural order. He is also interested in the complexities that come from a cultures
history and mythology, exploring the power these stories have in the present.
He gained an MFA in photography from the University of Hartford (2017) after following a BA in Social Sciences
from Western Washington University, Bellingham, WA (2005). His work has been shown nationally and internationally,
most recently at Organ Vida in Zagreb, Croatia, and the Wrong Gallery in Marfa, Texas. He is the recipient of the
2018/19 Parallel Platform Initiative, a 2018 Critical Mass finalist and was recently shortlisted for the Lucie Foundation's
Emerging Photographer Scholarship.
Alongside his personal practice, Garrett works fulltime as an editorial and commercial photographer. He has worked
extensively through Asia, Europe and North America (most often in a tent and sleeping bag). His commissioned work
has consistent overlap with his personal, focusing on cultural and environmental issues.
