bio + cv


Kevin Hoth is a photographer whose work focuses on three distinct areas: the manner in which multiple spaces can be formed into a singular frame, how emptiness can be visualized and depicted, and how meaning is ascribed in photographic representations. Kevin’s work has been shown in over eighty exhibitions nationally and internationally including most recently at Walker Fine Art (Denver, CO), The Houston Center for Photography, The Center For Fine Art Photography (Fort Collins, CO), The Colorado Photographic Arts Center (Denver, CO), and online in Humble Arts Foundation New York’s Year In Reverse. Fraction magazine also recently featured his portfolio Everywhere And All At Once in Issue 105. Kevin has made photographic work for over twenty years spanning diverse processes such as polaroid manipulations, digital manipulations, film photography, solo slideshow performances, and video installation art. Funfacts: He did a stint as a full-time graphic designer for, made an interactive garment way back in 2006, and played bass in a Seattle band during graduate school that played on the radio. Kevin was born and raised in Wisconsin, but has lived in Spain, Nantucket, Georgia, South Carolina, Utah, New Mexico, and regular Mexico. Kevin has taught graphic design, multimedia art, and photography at numerous universities and currently teaches in the Technology, Arts and Media Program at the University of Colorado in Boulder. He lives and works in lovely Boulder, CO with his daughter Anya and gets regularly woken up by coyote cries, owl hoots, and horse whinnies.
