Conor Elliott Fitzgerald’s photography and video practice began while serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Honduras and El Salvador. Making images started out as a way to document his life as a health educator, but steadily evolved into a tool for processing the legacy of colonialism in Central America and his connection (as a US citizen and having worked for a government agency) to US foreign policy. His experience in Central America continues to shape his research interests and influence his image making. Fitzgerald holds an MFA from the University of Arizona. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the Phoenix Art Museum, the Tucson Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tucson and the RAE Space for Contemporary Art, Germany. Fitzgerald currently resides in Tucson, Arizona, where he works as an artist and educator.
