Work by Elliott Kaufman
ELLIOTT KAUFMAN is a photographer who has shot both commercial photography and created public art installations. His photography captures the passage of time and plays with the temporality of photographic exposure. Kaufman's work has been exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the American Institute of Architects, The Light Gallery in New York, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. Kaufman’s career path is unique but has always revolved around architectural motives. When he began shooting in the mid 70’s his orientation was toward the fine arts. Kaufman developed ideas for site-specific photomurals and wall art much before this concept became a mainstream art venue. He was able to work in this capacity with corporate industrial clients such as Westinghouse, General Electric, Warner Brothers and The Walt Disney Company.
His twenty-something years of shooting architecture and design allowed him to work with a full range of firms that have been prized for their vision and abilities and include Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates, Gwathmey Siegel Architects, Davis Brody Bond Architects, FX Fowle Architects, Kohn Pederson Fox, Perkins Eastman Architects and Swanke Hayden Connell and Associates.
