Dan Mccormack

I studied Photography from 1962 - 1967 at the Institute of Design in Chicago and at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1967 to 1970. I began photographing the nude with Wendy, my wife, while in graduate school. Then for over forty years I explored various techniques and processes while photographing the nude as a central theme.
In 1976, I joined the Board of Directors of the Catskill Center for Photography and served as Vice President of the Board for ten years. One of my responsibilities was the installation of every show during those formative years.
In 1982, I won a NYSCA-CAPS Photography Fellowship with a series of infrared nude images that I made of Wendy. With that series, I produced a monograph, "BODY LIGHT-Passages in a Relationship" in 1989.
I have taught photography at Purdue University, Pratt Institute, SUNY New Paltz, Bard College, Ramapo College and Mercy College before I came to Marist College twenty years ago. I currently head the photography program at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York.

In 1998 I began to work with pinhole photography. In 2009, I won the Ultimate Eye Foundation’s grant for Figurative Photography with my pinhole camera imagery and had my work featured in an exhibition at the Peninsula Museum of Art in Belmont, CA.

From January to February 2010 I had a solo show at the Photography Center of the Capitol District in Troy, NY. I showed over fifty images from ten diverse series made from 1990 to 2018.
