Biography

Kevin Hoth is a photographer whose current work focuses on perception and the manner in which multiple spaces can be formed into a singular frame. Kevin’s work has been shown in over ninety exhibitions nationally and internationally including most recently at 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 On Death. Fraction magazine featured his portfolio Everywhere And All At Once in Issue 105. This series was also featured in March 2018 and March 2019 in shows at Walker Fine Art in Denver, Colorado.

Kevin was born and raised in Wisconsin. He has also lived in Spain, Utah, Nantucket, South Carolina, New Mexico, regular Mexico and quite possibly somewhere else. Kevin has taught college courses in graphic design, multimedia art, and photography at numerous universities. He currently teaches in the ATLAS Institute at the University of Colorado Boulder. He lives in mountainous Boulder, CO and gets regularly woken up by coyote cries, owl hoots, and horse whinnies.

Fun facts: He did a stint as a full-time graphic designer for Amazon.com, made an interactive garment with force sensors that played odd bodily noises back in 2006, collaborated extensively with a modern dance company as a VJ, and thumped bass in a Seattle band that once played live on KEXP-Seattle.
