Artist and occasional curator Moshe Quinn explores matters of silence, traces, and substance in urban environments. Over the past ten years, he has shown in galleries and museums in Japan, Korea, and the United States. His photographs have garnered awards from the collector Paul Sack in San Francisco and from Asher Miller of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A large-scale series of his photographs – a commission of new work – resides in the collection of the University of San Francisco. Since 2007 he has taught photography primarily at Foothill College in Silicon Valley, with additional appearances at City College of San Francisco and De Anza College.
Quinn earned a bachelors degree at Kenyon College in English and Religious Studies, and a Master of Fine Art at the San Francisco Art Institute. He currently lives in San Francisco where, among other cities, bicycling has made much of his photography possible.
