Raymond Meeks has been recognized for his books and pictures centered on memory and place, the way in which a landscape can shape an individual and, in the abstract, how a place possesses you in its absence.  In 2014, a mid-career retrospective of his books and prints (Where Objects Fall Away) was organized by Light Work in Syracuse, NY.  The exhibition featured more than twenty books, including artist books, self-published and trade editions. His books have been considered as a field or vertical plane for examining interior co-existences, as life moves in circles and moments and events, often years apart, unravel and overlap, informing new meanings. Raymond Meeks lives and works in the Hudson Valley (New York). His work is represented in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., Bibliotheque Nationale, France,and the George Eastman House, with recent solo exhibitions at Casemore Kirkeby in San Francisco and Wouter van Leeuwen in Amsterdam. His book Halfstory Halflife (Chose Commune, 2018) was a finalist for the Paris Photo/Aperture Photobook of the Year Award.  His most recent book (Supine), will be published by MACK in late 2020.
