Born 1981, New York, New York; lives in New York, New York

A boy shows off his magnum of Veuve Clicquot for the camera; a naked couple poses in a hotel room; a dog looks up from scavenging in the trash: Dash Snow's Polaroid photographs document his own life in New York's Lower East Side, a vie bohème that, in its excess, verges on the surreal. Like Ryan McGinley or Nan Goldin, who have also chronicled the downtown Manhattan scene, Snow takes a romantic approach and participates completely in the moments he documents, which ensures that his photographs do not collapse into voyeurism. In addition, he often contextualizes the photographs by showing them alongside large-scale installations that include found objects, newspaper clippings, and videos.
