Dan McCormack - Q4 Art Competition
I began studying Photography around 1962 at the Institute of Design in Chicago. My studies with Aaron Siskind, Joe Jachna, Arthur Siegal and Wynn Bullock gave me first hand experience with truly creative photographers. Next at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1967, working on an MFA in Photography, I began photographing the nude with Wendy, my wife. Then for over forty-eight years, I explored various techniques and processes while photographing the nude as a central theme. In 1982 I won a NYSCA-CAPS Photography Fellowship and in 2009, I won the Ultimate Eye Foundation’s grant for Figurative Photography. I currently head the film Photography program at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York.
