Scott Hinton


Scott Hinton received his BFA from the University of Nevada, Reno and an MFA from San Jose State University. He is a photographer and educator at the University of Nevada, Reno documenting the complex geographies of the human environment in landscapes of the evolving American West. The stimulus to photograph in the West is to experience the grandeur of open spaces and the expansive mountains and deserts. From the subtle hues of the morning sky to the dramatic rise of the sierra crest, these experiences drive a pursuit to photograph and continue a dialog of a landscape in flux.
