Mason Hershenow is a photographer, writer, and lecturer who lives and works in northern California. He earned his BA in photography from CSU Sacramento in 2014 and is currently pursuing his MFA at San José State University, where he has also taught an introductory photography course.
Interested in the systems we build and use to interact with ourselves, each other, and the world around us, Hershenow's work focuses largely on the tensions between archaic and contemporary practices in print media, publishing, and the physical archive, as well as institutional critique and the language used in and around academic art. His art practice combines street and candid photography, darkroom processes, traditional and digital printmaking, twentieth-century graphic design, machine writing, and installation art.
