Biography

Mark Klett is a photographer whose background includes working as a geologist before turning to art practice. His interests include making new works that responds to historic images; creating projects that explore relationships between time, change and perception; and exploring the language of photographic media through technology.

Klett has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Pollock- Krasner Foundation, the Buhl Foundation, and the Japan/US Friendship Commission. His work has been exhibited and published in the United States and internationally, and his work is held in more than 80 museum collections worldwide. He was the Chief Photographer for the Rephotographic Survey Project (1977-79) and director of the Third View Project (1997-2000), works that established precise methodologies for the practice of “rephotography,” or repeating historic landscape photographs within mixed arts and interdisciplinary contexts. He is the author and co-author of 16 books of photography.

Klett teaches landscape photography, seminars on photographic practice for artists, and classes in digital printing and technology. He was the recipient of the 2017 Insight Award from the Society for Photographic Education for significant career achievements.
