Jesse Burke divides his time between personal art projects and commissioned work. He received his MFA from Rhode Island School of Design, where he is a faculty member, and his BFA from the University or Arizona. Jesse’s work deals with themes related to vulnerability and identity, as well as human’s complicated relationship with nature. His monograph, Intertidal, was published by Decode Books in 2008. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in the U.S. and abroad including The Haggerty Museum, the Perth Center for Photography, the North Carolina Museum of Art, the Photographic Resource Center, the Print Center in Philadelphia and the Lishui Photo Festival in China.

Burke currently lives in Rhode Island with his wife and their three girls- Clover, Poppy, & Honey.
