Cooper Blade (b. 1992) is an American photographer (B.A. Hons. BTK University of Applied Sciences, Art & Design) currently based in Berlin, Germany. His work, which is documentary in nature, seeks to comment on our perception of the everyday and its connection to other topics such as banality, religion, humanism, skepticism, and materialism. Influenced by North American photographers like Jeff Wall, Stephen Shore, & William Eggelston as well as writers like Stanley Cavell, Walt Whitman, and Ralph Waldo Emerson, he is searching for and showing concrete views of objects that transcend the mere materiality of things and people.
Other achievements include two collaborations with the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, one of which, an artist residency, was exhibited in the foyer of the main Humboldt building on Unter den Linden, and focused on photography’s relationship to scientific research.
