Scott Norris is a fine art photographer and environmental science writer. Born in Berkeley, California, he holds masters degrees in biology and anthropology from the University of New Mexico. He views his photographic practice a tool for both philosophical and documentary investigation, and a vehicle for artistic expression. His work is an inquiry into the anthropological and existential aspects of being human in a time of social and environmental change. His approach over the past several years has been strongly influenced by readings in phenomenology, and environmental and feminist philosophy, resulting in a series of projects investigating self and subjectivity, male body and landscape, human-plant relationships and the paradoxes of self-portraiture. His work has been shown widely in group shows in the US and Europe. Scott currently lives in northern California with his wife and son.
