Ian C. Struckhoff (a.k.a. Ian X.) is a self-taught photographer, who began his work at the turn of the Millenium while studying Philosophy at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and the University of Sheffield in England. This show, his first, represents his work since his return to the United States in late 2003.

When asked to describe his work, Ian responds, "I mostly take strange portraits of beautiful girls, or maybe it's the other way 'round. My constant themes have been contrast (both visual and conceptual), beauty, darkness, personality, and the unnatural or supernatural. The same character, whether it's the subject herself or a fictional creation, should be seen as both powerful and vulnerable-- either predator or prey-- within an instant."
