Bill Jacobson

Bill Jacobson (b.1955, Norwich, CT) has been making photographs for nearly 50 years. Though his methods have varied considerably, the work is joined by underlying concerns with memory, perception, and the subtle dialogue between absence and presence.

Prior to moving to New York in 1982, Jacobson received a BA from Brown University (1977) and an MFA from San Francisco Art Institute (1981). He has exhibited widely in the U.S. and Europe, and is in the collections of the Guggenheim Museum; Whitney Museum; The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; The Brooklyn Museum; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Victoria and Albert Museum, and many others. Jacobson received fellowships from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation (2017), the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation (2012), the Aaron Siskind Foundation (1995), and the New York Foundation for the Arts (1994).

In addition to residencies at VCCA in both Virginia and France, he has had seven residencies at MacDowell and also attended Yaddo, Civitella Rainieri Foundation, Bogliasco Foundation, Blue Mountain Center, and Edward Albee Foundation. Between 2008 and 2018 he taught in the ICP/Bard MFA program. Seven monographs have been published of Jacobson’s work. A new book, which will include work from both VCCA residencies, will be published next year.
