About the Judge
Lecturer in Visual Arts in the Lewis Center for the Arts
Allan Macintyre was born in Sea Level, North Carolina, and received his B.A. in anthropology from Bowdoin College and his M.F.A. in photography from Massachusetts College of Art. He has been primarily interested in documenting volcanic environments for the past 15 years. A Fulbright grant and a New England Foundation Artist Grant have supported this work.
Macintyre has been a visiting professor at Princeton University, Colorado College, and Massachusetts College of Art. Recently, he has participated in the Portland Biennial and the New York Photo Festival. A solo show of photographs and drawings was exhibited at the University of Texas Rubin Gallery in the summer of 2007. This show also included a symposium on the relationship of geology and art. It was hosted by the UTEP Geology department, and included a field trip to several volcanic craters along the Mexican border.
A monograph of his work, Allan Macintyre, Recent Events, was published by Aperture in the fall of 2008. He is currently working on a new book which will focus on lava tree formations found on the Big Isand of Hawai'i.
