2015 Juror

Sean Wilkinson had the good fortune to work closely with three of the greatest photographers and teachers of the second half of the twentieth century: Minor White, Harry Callahan, and Aaron Siskind. Upon completing his M.F.A. at the Rhode Island School of Design, he taught at Harvard University before accepting a position in 1973 at the University of Dayton, where he was hired to create a new course of study in photography. Wilkinson has also sustained an active career as a photographer, exhibiting his work in museums and galleries across the country. He has won numerous awards and grants, and his work is in many significant museum, individual, and corporate collections. Wilkinson retired from UD in 2014.

Commenting on his own work, Wilkinson has written:

“I am interested in looking plainly at things that yield more than plain looking is presumed to reveal. The essential thing is to be fully present. Potential material is not hard to find, and in some ways, photography is as easy as it appears to be. The challenge is to see. Like breathing, it seems so simple until you give it your complete attention.”
