Martin Hyers and William Mebane began their collaborative work in 2004 with the project, EMPIRE. This installation of 100 photographs was exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago in 2012. Their work is featured on Tim Barber’s tinyvices.com, and was included in the 2008 and 2011 New York Photo Festivals. In 2010 they exhibited with Humble Arts Foundation at Scope / Basel, in Switzerland and were included in Between The Bricks and the Blood:TransgressiveTypologies at Steven Kasher Gallery, New York. Their work is also included in the permanent collection at The Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, as well as in the Whelan Collection in Atlanta, and the Fred Bidwell Collection in Cleveland. A monograph, to be co-published by Museum of Contemporary Photography and Daylight books, will be released in the spring of 2014.
Based in New York, they work collaboratively and individually as photographers on a wide range of fine art, editorial, and commercial assignments.
