My view camera set up for a shoot in Salton City in August of 2012.

I live and work in Los Angeles, and was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. I am currently pursuing an MFA through Hartford School of Art's Limited-Residency Program. I received my BFA in photography from Bard College in 2008. I have shown work in galleries and public art installations throughout the United States and Paris, including NEPO House (Seattle), Umbrella Arts (New York), Espace Commines (Paris), Slideluck (LA), Photographic Center Northwest (Seattle) and Violet Strays (Online). In 2013, I was commissioned to create work for Sunset Magazine’s Idea Town on the Washington Coast. I am currently working as a portrait photographer in Los Angeles (virginiawilcoxportraits.com). The Park, my recent collaboration with writer/critic Charles Mudede, was recently turned into a film with an original score by Sean Ono Lennon, and was exhibited at Seattle University's Hedreen Gallery. Bombay Beach, my current body of work documenting Southern California's Salton Sea, was recently exhibited in a solo show at Seattle's Glass Box Gallery.
