Skott Chandler is a photographic artist from Southern Utah, currently living and working in Denver, Colorado.
Skott came to photography late in his undergraduate career while studying studio art at Southern Utah University. During that time he experimented with the photographic medium, testing the limits of the ideals of photography. While at SUU, he received a UGRASP (Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Program) grant for his Photocubism series.
Skott graduated from Southern Utah University as the Outstanding Graduate of Art and Design, and after graduation he decided to further pursue his photographic career in the MFA program at Savannah College of Art and Design. While attending SCAD, he was chosen for a scholarship to help SCAD create a book and photograph archive of the swiftly vanishing historic buildings in the Sham Shui Po district of Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Skott has exhibited work throughout the United States, as well as internationally in Hong Kong and Geneva, Switzerland. He was selected by Gallery 263 in Cambridge, MA, as one of the Top 30 Emerging Artist Under 30 for 2011. Skott’s work is also included in the private collection of Southern Utah University.
About the House Watch Series
The photographs take the perspective of an omniscient voyeur investigating the dynamics of space within a home. Ceiling mounted pinhole cameras cast an unflinching gaze upon the inhabitants and rooms within the walls; not to judge, but to witness.
