Biography

Clifford Ross began his career as a painter and sculptor after graduating from Yale in 1974 with a degrees in Art and Art History. In 1995, he turned his attention toward photography and other media.

Frustrated by the lack of detail available with existing cameras, Clifford invented and patented the "R1" camera in 2002 and made some of the highest resolution large-scale landscapes in the world. His work is in numerous public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, among others. His book of photographs, Wave Music, includes an essay by philosopher Arthur Danto and an interview by novelist A.M. Homes.

He is represented by Sonnabend Gallery in New York. In 2009, a ten-year survey of his photographic work was exhibited at the Austin Museum of Art, and an exhibition of his Mountain and Hurricane series opened at the MADRE/Museo Archeologico in Naples, Italy. His work was also shown at Robilant +Voena Galleries/London and Milan, and Sonnabend Gallery/New York. His current work includes a stained glass wall for the new federal courthouse in Austin, Texas and he recently completed Harmonium Mountain, an animated, computer generated landscape video, with an original score by Philip Glass.
