The Triton Museum of Art is pleased to announce its first Statewide Photography Competition & Exhibition.  Following on the heels of the Triton’s phenomenally popular Painting, Watercolor, and Print & Drawing Competitions, the Triton Museum of Art’s 2012 Statewide Photography Competition & Exhibition invites photographers to submit their work for possible inclusion in a major exhibition beginning February 15, 2012. 

The competition is open to all types of photography, which will be judged in three categories: Fine Art Photography; Nature Photography; and Photo Journalistic Photography.  The exhibition and prize winners will be juried by internationally renown photographer, Brian Taylor. 

Brian is known for his innovative explorations of alternative photographic processes including historic 19th Century printing techniques, mixed media, and hand made books. He has been a recipient of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Polaroid Corporation. His work has been exhibited nationally and abroad in numerous solo and group shows and is included in the permanent collections of the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and the International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House, Rochester, NY.

Brian has taught photography workshops for over 20 years at institutions including the Friends of Photography, the Universities of California at Santa Cruz and at Berkeley, Stanford University, Photo Alliance, and the Oklahoma Arts Institute. Brian is currently a Professor of Photography and also Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at San José State University.
