Vik Muniz was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1961, but has lived and worked in New York since the late 1980's. He began his career as a sculptor, but gradually became more interested in photographic reproductions of his sculptures and eventually turned his attention exclusively to photography. In addition to The Things Themselves: Pictures of Dust at the Whitney Museum of American Art from January 27 through May 20, 2001, Muniz' work was recently included in several the following group shows: the Whitney's 2000 Biennial, Media/Metaphor at the Corcoran Gallery (opened December, 2000), Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art (1999) and Museum as Muse: Artists Reflect (1999) at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
