Leslie Krims (1943 - Present)
Leslie Krims creates carefully arranged tableaus, which he calls "fictions," that satirize various facets of contemporary culture, such as consumerism, race and gender issues, and liberal politics. His controversial photographs often portray nudes in unusual, shocking, or comical situations. He was one of many young photographers who became known for staged photography in the 1970s. Krims earned a BFA from the Cooper Union in 1964 and an MFA from Pratt Institute in 1967. Since 1969, he has been a professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo, mentoring many future artists, including Cindy Sherman.
