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.

Dru Donovan's work examines connections between physical and emotional occurrences by constructing or revisiting human experiences. Donovan’s photographs and videos have shown nationally and internationally and were included in museum exhibitions reGeneration2: Tomorrow’s Photographers Today at the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, Switzerland, the California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art. Her work was included in Night of The Lonely Hunter at Fraenkel Gallery, Desire at Yancey Richardson, and has had solo shows at Williamson | Knight, Hap Gallery, and Melanie Flood Projects. She has been published in Aperture Magazine, Blind Spot, Picture Magazine and Matte Magazine. In 2011 TBW Books published her first book, Lifting Water. In 2011-2012 she participated in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Workspace studio residency program, and this summer will be an artist in residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts. Donovan was the recipient of the John Gutmann Fellowship in 2015 and was a Guggenheim fellow in 2016.
