Biography: Nathan Wirth, born and raised in San Francisco, is a self-learned photographer that uses a variety of techniques to express his unending wonder of the fundamental fact of existence by attempting to focus on the silence that we can sometimes perceive in between the incessant waves of sound that often dominate our perceptions of the world. Nathan earned both his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in English Literature from San Francisco State University. Often returning to the same locations many times, Nathan seeks to explore the silence and the sublimity of those places, especially the sea.
