About

Yechen Zhao studies the history and theory of photography, and is currently writing a dissertation on posthumously discovered photographers in 1970's America. Other research projects include the MoMA installation photographer Soichi Sunami and the sixteenth-century Saint Veronica Altarpiece formerly displayed in Old Saint Peter's Basilica. His writing on the book Wisconsin Death Trip and 1970's forensic techniques will appear in a forthcoming issue of History of Photography dedicated to photography and policing. His work has been generously supported by the Terra Foundation for American Art and the Center for Creative Photography. Beginning September 2021, he is the Marcia Brady Tucker Fellow in Photography at Yale University Art Gallery.
