Eduardo Calderón studied Anthropology at the University of Washington and received his BA in 1972. He has worked as a photographer in the Northwest since the late 1970’s. Calderón is interested in finding open-ended moments on the street that he can isolate within the photographic frame to encourage viewers to use their imaginations when encountering the ambiguity of the images. He shoots some of his work locally but more often while traveling in Latin America and Europe. Calderón’s work has been featured in solo shows at several Seattle galleries and included in numerous regional invitational exhibitions, most recently Seattle Collects and a parallel show to Kingdoms of the Sun and the Moon. The Art of Peru both at the Seattle Art Museum (2015 and 2013/14 respectively) and 20 Portraits of NW Artists at the Museum of Northwest Art in LaConner, Washington (2013). Calderón has received recent grants from 4Culture, the Seattle Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
