Danielle Mericle was born in Tucson, Arizona in 1975 and is currently based in Eugene, Oregon. Her work ponders the complex relationship between history, knowledge, and power, and has been exhibited at venues such as White Columns, NYC, The Columbus Museum of Art, Georgia, and the International Center for Photography in New York City. Mericle is the author of Seneca Ghosts, noted by Alec Soth as one of the top-10 photography books of 2008. Her book project, Archive, intertwines photographs shot at various sites in Peru, including a worker’s strike, an archaeological dig, and the Peruvian National Archives. Archive was included among a tightly curated selection of artists books exhibited at the 2013 ICP Triennial. Mericle is co-founder of A-Jump Books, a publishing company which specializes in small-run photography books.
