Edward Keating has lived and worked as a photographer in New York City since 1981. Like previous generations of street photographers, he taught himself how to photograph by chronicling street life of everyday New Yorkers. Ten years later he was hired as a Staff Photographer at The New York Times where he covered national and international news and was a regular contributor to the Sunday New York Times Magazine. In addition, he co-founded “Vows,” The New York Times wedding column. In 2002, Keating won the Pulitzer Prize for his coverage on the attacks of 9/11. He has also been a regular contributor to Time Magazine, Rolling Stone, “W” Magazine and New York Magazine.
Keating’s work is in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York City and The Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida. His one-person exhibitions include; The Camera Club of New York, The Leica Gallery-New York and at Visa Pour l’image in Perpignan, France. In 2008, Keating exhibited his collection “New York” alongside Robert Frank’s “The Americans” at The Pingyao International Photography Festival in Pingyao, China and his collection on Route 66 was featured at Bursa Fotofest in Bursa, Turkey, in 2011.
