TIMOTHY HURSLEY

Timothy Hursley was born in 1955 in Detroit, Michigan, where he apprenticed in architectural photography with Hungarian photographer Balthazar Korab beginning in 1972. His apprenticeship continued until he moved to Little Rock, Arkansas in 1980, where he started his own studio, The Arkansas Office.

 

From 1982 to 1987, Hursley made architectural photographs in New York of Andy Warhol’s last Factory on Madison Avenue at 34th Street. Eleven of Hursley's Factory photographs were published in Andy Warhol "Giant" Size (Phaidon Press, 2006).

 

In addition, from 1985-1990, Hursley photographed legal brothels in Nevada. Hursley revisited the Nevada brothels in 2001, publishing his photography in Brothels of Nevada: Candid Views of America’s Legal Sex Industry (Princeton Architectural Press, 2003).

 

Since 1994, Tim has worked on a third major project photographing artist-architect Samuel Mockbee’s Rural Studio at Auburn University. This has resulted in three books: Rural Studio: Samuel Mockbee and an Architecture of Decency (Princeton Architectural Press, 2002), Proceed and Be Bold (Princeton Architectural Press, 2005) and Rural Studio at Twenty (Princeton Architectural Press, 2014).
