Doug Rickard was born in San Jose, California in 1968 and studied United States history and sociology at the University of California, San Diego, before moving to photography. Rickard’s most well known body of work, ‘A New American Picture’ (2012) draws on this background while taking a digital road trip via Google Maps to focus on the parts of America left behind in a contemporary economic and social divide. Rickard is in several public collections including Harry Ransom Center, The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA, Museum of Art at the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Columbia College, Chicago, IL, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX, Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA, and Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT.
