EVAN WILLIAM P L U N K E T T

530 West 25th Street, New York, NY


A deserted highway in the middle of the night, a neon sign in the distance; ghostly figures on the sidewalk, empty corridors, rusty old Cadillacs lying in the woods. Evan William Plunkett’s photographs could be set anywhere and anytime in small-town America. Eerily, they evoke stories, voices, and people who once inhabited these half-desolate spaces. Plunkett gathers material locally and during his travels across the country, capturing American themes and historically or culturally relevant places and objects symbolic of Americana. The atmospheric quality of Plunkett’s photography is achieved through a combination of long-exposure techniques and intentional camera movement, forging a style which Plunkett describes as “photo impressionism.” Inspired by films, Plunkett develops a sense of narrative flow, recreating nostalgic scenes “to illustrate the fluidity and essence of the perpetual movement of time.” His photographs offer a unique perspective on the nature of reality, as seen through the eyes of a millennial facing the complexities and challenges of today’s America. Currently residing in Putney, Vermont, Plunkett grew up in New Jersey and completed his studies in Political Science at the University of Miami. His work has appeared in many juried exhibitions and publications. Notably, his photographs were featured on the cover of Shots Magazine and received the Peoples’ Choice Award in Black and White Magazine, among other accolades. Plunkett has published two photography monographs and his third will be published in November 2023. Plunkett is a social justice and environmental advocate and sits on the Board of Directors of The Doris Wilderness Foundation, Inc., an organization committed to helping preserve the neotropical rainforest.

Art, especially photography, was an important part of my upbringing. Concepts of color, composition, documenting, and expression were household ideas that sank into my way of seeing. All these influences formed my artistic approach and continue to hold sway over its evolution. Each purchase of a print includes a complimentary copy of the artist’s monograph, First Impressions.
