2018 JUROR – Andrew Ross
Andrew Ross is an Assistant Professor at Radford University, teaching studio art photography at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. He is an internationally-exhibited photographic artist whose experience spans over 30 years – from the initial wonders of black & white film and darkroom work in his teenage and college years, through many years as a freelance commercial photographer, to now focusing on the fine art aspects of both film and digital photography. Ross received his Master of Fine Arts degree in Photography from Florida State University and his Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prior to joining the faculty at Radford University in 2014, Ross taught at The Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham; Florida State University; and abroad in China and Italy.
“Through my photography, I explore the boundary between vision and perception, seeing and imagining, the real and the remembered. The images I create are both an inward journey and an outward expression, as I look for my place in society, society’s role within my life, and the significance of my presence along the timeline of history.”
