About the Juror:

Tillman Crane began his career in 1978 as a photojournalist for The Maryville Daily Times. Ten years later, he began to teach his craft. While platinum/palladium photographs remain his passion, he was quick to integrate digital vocabulary into his practice. As the medium continues to evolve and Tillman along with it, the content of the artist’s images has remained constant—the ordinary, found in the everyday environments that surround him.
Tillman’s workshops are offered across the globe, from the Erie Canal to China. He teaches location-based curriculum where he is able to share his appreciation for translating the found into successful images, and also the art of platinum printing, to showcase one’s vision through hand-made prints.

For inspiration from Tillman’s portfolios, look for his limited edition books: Tillman Crane/Structure (2001), Touchstones (2005), Odin Stone (2008), and A Walk Along the Jordan (2009).  His work is included in several books on contemporary photography, as well as in collections worldwide. And if you’re in the Camden, Maine area, stop by his gallery at 22 Pearl Street, to see his latest masterful platinum/palladium prints.
