Documentary photographer and educator Vincent Cianni (B.S. Penn State University, Maryland Institute College of Art, MFA Photography at SUNY New Paltz.) teaches photography at Parsons, The New School of Design and the International Center of Photography.
We Skate Hardcore was published by NYU Press and the Center for Documentary Studies in 2004 and was awarded the American Association of University Presses Best Book Design award. A major survey of this work was shown at the Museum of the City of New York in 2006. His work has been published in Double Take, Aperture, The New Yorker, Photography as Activism (Bogre, Focal Press, 2011); New York 400: A Visual History of America’s Greatest City (Running Press, 2009); The Polaroid Book: Selections from the Polaroid Collection of Photography (Taschen, 2005). His work has been exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Photographers’ Gallery, London; George Eastman House and the Museum of the City of New York.
Duke University’s Rare Books, Manuscripts and Special Collections Library established a study archive in 2007 to “insure the preservation of the documentary record created” throughout Cianni’s career as a documentary photographer, and includes photographs, negatives, video, notes, correspondence made in conjunction with the projects and darkroom.” His photographs are represented in the collections of: Kinsey Institute for Sexual Research; George Eastman House; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of fine Arts, Houston; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Museum of the City of New York, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Harry Ranson Humanities Research Center, and Bibliotecque National de France.
Cianni received awards from the Jerome Foundation, New York State Council on the Arts, Artist’s Space, New Jersey Sate Arts Council, Agfa Corporation, Ruttenberg Arts Foundation, and most recently two support grants from the Palm Center and the New School University’s Faculty Fund Award to support his new project “Gays in the Military: How America Thanked Me.”
Since November, 2009, Cianni has been interviewing and photographing gay and lesbian veterans and service members recording their experiences of discrimination and recounting the effects that the ban on homosexuality had on their career in the armed forces and their life afterward. The edited interviews and photographs of over 100 subjects will be exhibited as an audio and photographic installation at the Stephen Daiter Gallery, Chicago, and the Station Museum of Contemporary Art, Houston, TX.
