Judges Biographies: 


Nick Marshall

Nick Marshall is responsible for directing the development, design, and production of the George Eastman Museum's gallery exhibitions. Additionally, he oversees the development and execution of the museum’s public programs, including the Wish You Were Here lecture series and exhibition-related programming. Marshall teaches photography and exhibition management courses at the Visual Studies Workshop and is a practicing artist. He has a MFA from Rochester Institute of Technology and a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design.

Dan Larkin

Dan was born in Rochester, New York in 1955. He received a BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1993 and a MFA from Bard College in 1994. He is presently an Associate Professor in Fine Art Photography at the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences at RIT.  

He considers himself an artist with a distinctive sensitivity for dealing with nuances of light and color.  His concern with photography lies in coaxing insight from the seemingly ordinary. Dan has developed  ongoing bodies of work that separately, or when grouped together with specificity, might suggest an implied narrative.
