Beau Torres (b. 1989, Powder Springs, GA) is a photo-based artist living and working in New York. He holds a BFA in Studio Art with Concentration in Photography from Georgia State University, and earned his MFA in Advanced Photographic Studies from the International Center of Photography-Bard. His main interests lie in everyday life as well as apophenia, the tendency to find meaning or relationships in seemingly random data/phenomena. The work he makes is concerned with New New Photography, a dialect of photography situated at the intersection of still-life tradition, assemblage, and online culture. Within his studio practice he creates a visual language juxtaposing genuine sentiments with throwaway objects/phrases to both critique and embrace a societal mindset of cynicism and irony.
