Teju Cole is an acclaimed photographer, writer, and art historian. His relentless travel provides opportunities for precise observation and reflection on human culture—what can be seen and described, and what can be felt. In his recent exhibition Blind Spot and Black Paper and the related book, he links images of public and private spaces with insightful prose in a glancing, poetic manner. 

Cole is the photography critic of the New York Times Magazine and an award-winning novelist (Open City) and essay writer (Known and Strange Things). These works have earned a variety of honors including the PEN/Hemingway Award, the New York City Book Award for Fiction, the Focus Award from the Griffin Museum of Photography, and the Windham Campbell Prize for fiction from Yale University. Raised in Nigeria, Cole currently resides in Brooklyn.
