His work focuses primarily on basic human needs such as belonging, connection, and purpose and how these needs manifest within both individuals and the wider landscape of this divisive culture. His work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions – including at the deYoung Museum, and Soho Photo Gallery. Corrigan’s photographs have received several honorable mentions at past CPA Juried Exhibitions. His work is also held in numerous public and private collections. He currently lives and works in both California and Japan.
