Sergio Ximenez (b. 1988, Los Angeles) is a conceptual photographic artist that intends to create contemporary art in dialogue with newsworthy situations and current events, critiquing societal constructs and ideologies.
His photographic work delves into the prevalence of lens-based capturing, recording and monitoring devices in our society, the ease in proliferation of these devices into our every day lives, and how the power dynamics attached to these ubiquitous devices can affect, influence, and even control, human behavior between and amongst the removed observer and the observed subjects.
By basing his art on recent trends and focusing on concepts that are more global and widespread, the work will enter into everyday discussions and be more accessible to a greater multitude.
Ximenez graduated summa cum laude from the University of New Mexico photography department in Albuquerque, NM where he received a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Studio Arts.
He currently surveys, creates and resides in Los Angeles, CA.
