Bio ︎

︎Jon Ervin is a New York based artist working in photography and video. He was born in 1989 in Oklahoma where he was raised and then later moved to New York. He received a BFA in Photography from Parsons the New School of Design in 2012. He also attended the School of Visual Arts where he received an MFA degree in Photography, Video, and Other Related in 2014. He derives inspiration from his rural childhood landscape and a blue-collar environment which informed his male adolescent coming of age experiences.  His work ranges from cultural documentation of places throughout the United States to investigations of masculinity and shared male experiences. Through still and moving images, he uses the camera as an investigative tool as well as a vessel for performance. The camera becomes an active participant between his subjects, himself, and the viewer to examine these themes full of contradictions and complexities.
