About the Juror: Anna Strickland is a Senior Critic in the Photography Dept. at Rhode Island School of Design where she has taught the Antique and Alternative Processes Class for over two decades. She has also taught the contemporary application of historical processes at a number of other colleges, universities and workshops throughout the US and Europe. Originally trained in antique processes at Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY in the 70â€™s, she has continuously employed these alternative methods in her installations and other professional productions. She holds a graduate degree from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston where she did original research in historical processes as part of her thesis. Her work is found in both private and public collections throughout the US and Europe. One of the courses she teaches every year involves bringing RISD students to Paris to work at SpÃ©os: Paris Photographic Institute. This year she exhibited work from her seminal â€œLadder Seriesâ€ at the Galerie SpÃ©os, which included Platinum/palladium prints. She is currently working on a portfolio of platinum and gum bi-chromate prints.
