BIOGRAPHY

 

I’ve never called myself a photographer. I studied painting and sculpture and see myself as an artist with a camera. I learned everything I know about art from Marcel Duchamp who taught me that anything, including a photograph, could be a work of art. -Andres Serrano

 

Born in 1950 in New York. Attended Brooklyn Museum Art School, 1967-69.
