(born 1953) Since the 1980’s Casebere’s photographs have transported viewers into ambiguous, evocative and surreal environments. Casebere’s process involves constructing tabletop models out of modest materials, such as Styrofoam, plaster and cardboard. He then dramatically lights these constructions and carefully positions his camera to manipulate the composition and the mood of the resulting photograph. Devoid of human figures, the constructions invite viewers to project into and inhabit the space.
