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 eighty exhibitions nationally and internationally including most recently 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. This series was featured March 2018 in a group show at Walker Fine Art in Denver, Colorado.

Funfacts: He did a stint as a 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 played bass in a Seattle band during grad school that played live on the radio.

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