Dominic Lippillo and Mark Schoon earned their MFA’s in Photography from Ohio University in 2009. Working independently with lens-based media they soon realized they had a shared interest in the domestic. Although they approach their solo work differently, a common sensibility could be recognized in the earlier work of both artists leading to the creation of their first collaborative effort, Anti-local.
Selections from their collaborations are included in the permanent collections of The Museum of Photographic Art; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; The University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa; the University of North Dakota. Their works has been published in the journal Exposure, Lenscratch, Daily Serving, La Journal de la Photographie and in the supplement of images accompanying Bruce Warren’s textbook Photography: The Concise Guide (2nd Edition March 2011).
Lippillo is an Associate Professor of Art at Mississippi State University. Schoon is an Associate Professor of Art at The University of West Georgia.
