Donald Woodman


Artstor is collaborating with Donald Woodman to share 200 of his photographs in the Digital Library.

Donald Woodman's photographs of subjects ranging from architecture to therapy, clouds, the Holocaust, and small-town rodeos, have been exhibited nationally and internationally, and his work is included in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum; the Museum of Art and History in Fribourg, Switzerland; the Albuquerque Museum; the New Mexico Museum of Art; the New Orleans Museum of Art; the Butler Art Institute; the Walker Art Center; the Corcoran Gallery of Art; as well as various private collections, including the Polaroid Collection Program. As an accomplished commercial photographer, Woodman's work has also been featured in publications such as Time Magazine, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Art in America, and New York Newsday.

As a teacher, Woodman has brought this unique understanding of photography to several universities around the United States, including the University of Texas, Houston, the University of New Mexico, Valencia Campus, and Western Kentucky University. His work shows his ability to meld his broad knowledge of traditional photographic techniques with the changing advances in digital photography.

In addition, Woodman has collaborated with his wife, the artist Judy Chicago, on a variety of art projects. Woodman also produced the photographic work for all of Chicago's numerous gallery catalogues and art books.

Woodman's archives are scheduled to join the History Museum Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe.
