Scott London is a Los Angeles-based photographer whose images have appeared in books, newspapers and magazines worldwide. His publishing credits include Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Newsweek, The Atlantic, Fast Company, GQ, Architectural Digest and National Geographic Traveler. His work has also been the subject of features in Wired, CNN and the Discovery Channel’s “This Happened Here.”
Scott is perhaps best known for his images of Burning Man, a series spanning over a decade of work. The photographs appear in Burning Man: Art on Fire, a bestselling coffee-table book published by Race Point. A collaboration with writer Jennifer Raiser and fellow photographer Sidney Erthal, the book is now available in a new and expanded edition. More info at Amazon.com
Scott’s work has also been exhibited at museums and shows across the U.S. and Europe. Highlights include the “Living” exhibition at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark and the “Art in an Ephemeral Age” show at the Institute of Art and Ideas in England. He is a featured photographer in the Moving Europe project currently making its way through the streets of several European cities, including Amsterdam, Athens, and Lisbon.
In addition to his photography, Scott is known for his print and radio journalism. He is the former host of “Insight and Outlook,” a weekly cultural affairs program heard on National Public Radio stations across the United States.
Scott was born in Washington D.C. At the age of five, his family moved to Stockholm, Sweden, where he was raised and educated—and where, as a teenager, he taught himself photography. He returned to the States in his mid-20s and eventually landed on the West Coast. America is built on a tilt, as he likes to say, and everything loose slides to California.
