Candidates for the Assistant Professor of Photography faculty position at Parsons will present to The New School community about their teaching philosophy, work and creative practice. These job talks are open to all and we encourage all to attend--particularly the Parsons Photo and AMT communities.

Dan Torop creates images of landscapes. His photographs have been published in the catalogue Dan Torop: Frozen Period (Bradley Family Foundation, 2015), the monograph Skydiving (A-Jump Books, 2010), as well as in Triple Canopy, Paper Monument, Cabinet, and other periodicals. The MacDowell Colony, The Center for Land Use Interpretation, Teachers College, and Eyebeam have granted him residencies. He has put up solo shows at Derek Eller Gallery (NY), Lynden Sculpture Garden (Milwaukee), The Green Gallery (Milwaukee), Tops Gallery (Memphis), and Marianne Boesky Gallery (NY). His project Chapter XVIII is on long term view at the Center for Land Use Interpretation's Exhibit Hall in Wendover, Utah. He is co-editor of ASMR4, a series of small photography monographs. He contributes code to darktable, an open source tool for processing photographs. Torop has most recently taught at Columbia University, Florida State University, City College, and New York University. He lives in Brooklyn. He is currently photographing in a nearly fallow garden and by a nearly vanished lake.
