Jock Sturges, born in 1947 in New York, is an American photographer who, alongside Sally Mann or Joseph Szabo, authored one of the most intimate portraits of adolescence and youth. Interested in the medium since the mid-60s, Sturges educated himself at the Malboro College in Vermont (1974), where he studied Perceptual Psychology and Photography, later continued at the San Francisco Art Institute (1985). Even though he started to exhibit in the 70s, holding several displays throughout the next decade, his serious recognition came in the early-90s. Surrounded by both broad acclaim and many controversies, Sturges published his first book "The Last Day of Summer" (1992), followed by "Radiant Identities" and "Evolution of Grace" (both 1994). Some of his most important exhibitions of the time include venues such as the Prinz Gallery in Kyoto (1994), the Museum of Modern Art in Frankfurt am Main, and Kasseler Kunstverein (both 1996). Today, his work is featured in the world's most significant collections: the Museum of Modern Art in New York, San Francisco Museum of Art, and Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. In 2007, the photographer himself was portrayed in a documentary "Line of Beauty and Grace".
