Brian Ulrich

is an American photographer known for his photographic exploration of consumer culture.Brian Ulrich was born 1971 in Northport, NY. His photographs portraying contemporary consumer culture reside in major museum collections such as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography. Ulrich earned his MFA in photography at Columbia College Chicago and a BFA in photography at the University of Akron. An internship at the Akron Art Museum further fueled Brian’s research and knowledge of the history of the medium. He later spent considerable time working at the Howard Greenberg Gallery in NY and then the Cleveland Museum of Art, often staying after hours to sift through the vast libraries, collections and archives of photography. It is this understanding of the history of the medium that informs much of his work which today addresses issues social, political and historical.
