Douglas Prince has been engaged in photography for the last fifty years, both as a teacher and as a picture maker.  He has taught at The University of Florida and RISD.  His photographs have been included in many group exhibitions in the United States as well as abroad. He has had numerous one-person shows in New York and Chicago, and has received several grants, including two NEA’s, in 1977 and 1979. His workcan be found in many permanent collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Addison Gallery of American Art, the Currier Museum of Art and the Princeton Art Museum.

Mr. Prince's first monograph titled, All Possible Worlds, was published by the University of Northern Kentucky Press. “In Doug Prince’s photo-sculptures and blended images we find the sensibility of a Metaphysical poet who creates other an invitation to see the world in a new way, to make new connections,” from “Treading the Brink” by Robert C. Craven.

Mr. Prince's earlier work exhibits an uncommon mastery in the darkroom. Beginning in 1990, he has been exploring digital image-making, and now makes beautiful and provocative digital prints. Much of his work can also bee seen on line

In March 2012 Mr. Prince was invited to present a lecture on his work, An Evolving Vision, at the Annenberg Space for Photography, Los Angeles. A recent monograph, EPIDERMIS, The Poetry of Skin, has been published by Maple Seed Press.  He currently lives in Portsmouth, NH and teaches as adjunct faculty at the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH.
