Needs and Acts:
Works by Gary Higgins


What Does God Mean?

"Needs and Acts refers to a project of mine done with view cameras and found objects between 1990 and 1994. I use it as a general title for the scope of human motivations. I’m interested in what makes people tick." With X-rays as his main vehicle, Mr. Higgins has supplemented with a variety of other medical media to create photomontages of persons, which demonstrate how the body is seen in contemporary society as an unwieldy, obsolescent frame.

Mr. Higgins received his BFA cum laude in Photography at University of Connecticut, Storrs in 1986 and his MFA in Photography at Arizona State University in 1992. Recently having returned to Connecticut after a stay in the west, he has exhibited in solo and group exhibits from coast to coast, as well as in Europe, mostly in galleries and museums concentrating on contemporary work.
