Philip-Lorca diCorcia has received international recognition for his choreographed urban scenes, portraits, landscapes, interiors, and fashion photography. His scenes of everyday life go beyond life's banality. Seemingly spontaneous, they are staged to add drama; the result is a mixture of reality and fantasy. The use of light is also an important aspect of his photography, which adds to the otherworldly feel of his images. 
 
Born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1951, diCorcia studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, receiving a Master of Fine Arts from Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut in 1979. Early in his career, he obtained grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. He was recently the subject of a solo exhibition at David Zwirner, New York, which displayed a selection of his fashion photographs from eleven "stories" created from 1997 to 2008 for W magazine. Other recent one-person shows include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston. His work is in the collections of major museums worldwide, including the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
