John Lathram III


John Sherman Lathram lll (b. 1962- Lexington KY) is a mixed-media artist whose work incorporates many aspects of technology: digital photography, video, robotics, biological systems and computer software.

His current photographic studies explore the body image of fringe subcultures as defined by historical essays and articles as well as current socio-political events. His images often draw upon the parallels of cultural idioms and addresses “taboo” cultural situations by conjoining juxtaposed cultural icons. His First book is at the publishers as of this writing and features The “Ladies” of the Columbus, a photo-essay book containing images of local female illusionists.

His works have appeared in New York, under well-received reviews in the New York Times, as well as several Columbus venues.

Mr. Lathram graduated from The Ohio State University in 2004 with an MFA in Art and Technology. He has been an adjunct professor at The Ohio State University and Columbus State Community College.
