 About the Jurors 


Dan Burkholder

Dan Burkholder was one of the first photographic artists to embrace digital technology in the early 1990’s. True to his love of the traditional photograph, Dan uses digital technology to build images that still look and feel like real photographs, not like something from a graphic designer’s portfolio. Melding his unique vision with mastery of both the wet and digital darkrooms, his platinum prints are now included in many museum and private collections.

Originating the digital-negative process in 1992, Burkholder has helped open doors for all black and white photographers interested in moving into the new electronic technologies. His award-winning book, Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing, is regarded as the most authoritative work in the field.

Dan has taught classes and workshops at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the lnternational Center of Photography in New York, the University of Texas at San Antonio, the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego and others. Active with the Texas Photographic Society for many years, he is currently serving on the Advisory Board for this organization.
Dan Burkholder was born in Hagerstown, Maryland, an agri-industrial community in the Appalachian Mountains. He attended Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California, where he received his BA and Masters Degrees in Photography.

Dan lives in Palenville, New York, with his wife, Jill Skupin Burkholder, and their six cats.

Besides photography, Dan enjoys spending time with Jill, motorcyling, and exploring their new home in the Hudson River Valley.
