Juror of Awards for Photography

Doug Schwab, born in 1946, in Orange, New Jersey, is a quintessential self-taught photographer who began his journey into the photographic life as early as age ten when he started to experiment with film processing and printing. By age 13, he was already a constant presence in his own darkroom, developing and sharpening his printing skills on the enlarger he’d bought with money saved from a paper route. His early passion then led him to study graphic arts in high school and to work in the printing industry, which he followed upon graduation with a six-year position in a commercial studio in Newark, NJ, and then as staff photographer with the ITT Corporation in Nutley, NJ, a position he held for eight years.

In the later 1970’s, Schwab began his formal education in photography at New York City’s School of Visual Arts and The New School for Social Research. At The New School, Schwab studied with renowned photographers George Tice and Lisette Modell, whom he befriended and continued to study privately with her up until her death in 1982. Professionally during this time, Schwab taught photography at New York City’s famed Germain School of Photography, and later became a well-known black and white printer for Photographics Unlimited in the heart of New York’s Photo District.

The 1990’s brought a time of artistic reevaluation for Schwab. In an attempt to more deeply explore photography as an art form, Schwab studied figure drawing at the Art Students League, and painting, sculpture, and printmaking at Brooklyn College where he earned both his Bachelor’s and Master of Fine Art degrees. It was here, at Brooklyn College, that he developed his current interest in historical photographic processes.

Doug Schwab taught photography as an adjunct professor at Kingsborough Community College for many years, as well as at Adelphi University, and Pratt Institute. Currently, Schwab is a Tenured Assistant Professor of Photography at Brooklyn College. He has also had the recent good fortune to collaborate with Robert Gurbo, Curator for the Estate of Andre Kertesz, as a prepress digital editor for two books by Robert Gurbo of Kertesz’s work, Andre Kertesz: The Polaroids, and Andre Kertesz: On Reading, by Robert Gurbo. Both books published by W. W. Norton.
