Star Rush is a Vietnamese American documentary and street photographer and writer, and an advocate of mobile photography.

Her work explores mythical and mundane notions of America as she tries to understand the threads and stories that weave place and identity. What are the signs of belonging, leaving, arriving, erosion of certainties and corruptions of absolutes among images of people, landscapes, and objects? She says, “How can images tell stories which situate past and present as moments of simultaneity? My mobile photography pursues the idea of pulling the past forward into lyrical, narrative images that transgress boundaries of “old” and “new,” using a utilitarian appliance, the everyday “eye” of a cell phone camera.”

Rush’s photography has been exhibited in the United States, as well as London and Rome. Most recently a selection of photographs was included in a group exhibit in Seattle as part of “States,” at IDEA Odyssey Gallery, October 2011, and published in photography magazines Actual Colors May Vary and Camerpixo in November 2011. In 2012, her photoblog became syndicated on Photoverse, a handheld application developed by Kolekse.com

She’s an artist member of IDEA Odyssey Artist Cooperative & Gallery in Seattle and a founding member of Mobile Photo Group, an international collective of photographers. She sometimes contributes to wearejuxt.com and iPhoneography.com among others. Rush is now at work completing a documentary project, “Passing Praise and Prosperity,” documenting small town environments in the Pacific Northwest. Her series, “Departs” is expected to be published in Askgar Magazine in April 2012. She teaches writing at Cornish College of the Arts. [Official Website]
