Richard Petrucci is a Brooklyn, New York based visual artist working principally with photography, with each installation taking a slightly different form, including digital projections and prints. Often traveling for his work, notions of documentation and the status of the photographic image are at the core of his practice. Richard’s experience as a professional photo retoucher has had a profound influence on his artwork. In his most recent project, Richard traveled to Europe, where he photographed royal and municipal gardens.
