JFK T8’s “A Traveling Dream” – Timothy Hutto

Meet NY-based photographer Timothy Hutto of the JFK T8 Artist Showcase.

Brooklyn-based Timothy Hutto is a photographer who, through the study of sign processes, signification, and figure-ground relationships, touches overlapping themes of relativism and code through color theory and composition.

Hutto uses color, plain objects, and generic messages in his photography to create a world where everyday items are given a new meaning. His subject matter comments on the everyday beauty of the American middle class.

“The artworks are inspired by the icons of New York City,” said Hutto. “My photographs seek to transform what is considered cliché representations of NYC —such as vacation souvenirs and a folded pizza slice—into witty visual messages.

Hutto's work is part of “A Traveling Dream” T8 Artist Showcase presented by URW, American Airlines, The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. In curation with Vaughn Bentley Creative, four local New York artists were chosen for the first installment of the artist showcase—highlighting local artistic expressions of what it means to be a New Yorker.

Guests will have the opportunity to view the T8 Artist Showcase installation May 22 through August 2024. Follow us on Instagram (@jfkterminal 8) to see all the latest details surrounding this event.
