Douglas D. Prince
In a career spanning almost 50 years Douglas D. Prince manages to stay immensely curious about new technology and manages to keep making fresh and relevant images in todays world. In working with the camera, in the darkroom, or on the computer he is exploring how the process of photography can help create meaningful and resonating images. At the same time photography is about exploring the world, interpreting or interacting with what you see. This increasingly takes the form of using internet as a camera, using pre-existing images as a basis for his work. Douglas Prince uses the vast possibilities of the technology and the unlimited availability of images as an excuse to be completely free; his images span a large range of styles and subjects and techniques and have in common only that they are poignant and significant.
Douglas Prince’s work is part of several notable permanent collections, among which the Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Smithsonian Institution, Washington, The Art Institute of Chicago and the International Museum of Photography, Rochester, New York. Douglas has been teaching photography at universities around the USA since the 1970s. He currently teaches at the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH.

- My creative evolution in photography is driven by my observations, my response to the environment, seeing things, and a need to manifest this vision into a tangible form. Another motivation is my curiosity about image processes and how these processes affect my perceptions.
