Kei Ito

Kei Ito is a full time artist and Full Circle's first Artist in Residence. He is a photographer and installation artist with an MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Kei’s photographic work addresses issues of generational connection and deep loss as he explores the materiality of photography as a medium. His recent work deals with the tragedy and legacy passed on from his grandfather who survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, yet died from cancer and the threat of nuclear disaster which is still present today.
