About the Author

Jim Stone turned to photography while studying engineering at MIT. His photographs have been exhibited and published internationally, and collected by the Museum of Modern Art, Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among many others. Six of his books, A User’s Guide to the View Camera, Darkroom Dynamics, A Short Course in Photography and A Short Course in Digital Photography (both with Barbara London), Photography 10th Edition, and Photography: The Essential Way (both books with Barbara London and John Upton), are in wide and continued use for university-level courses, and there have been three artist’s books published of his photographs, Stranger Than Fiction (Light Work, 1993), Historiostomy (Piltdown Press, 2001), and Why My Pictures are Good (Nazraeli Press, 2005).

 

Stone has received awards from the Massachusetts Arts Council, The New England Foundation for the Arts, The San Francisco Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. For several years he served on the board of directors for the Society for Photographic Education and Boston’s Photographic Resource Center. He taught formerly at Boston College and the Rhode Island School of Design. Currently he is Professor of Photography at the University of New Mexico.
