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. During that time his photographs have been included in many group exhibitions in this country as well as abroad. He has had numerous one-person shows in New York and Chicago, and he has received several grants, including two NEA’s in 1977 and 1979. His work is found in permanent collections, such as, the Museum of Modern Art, the Addison Gallery of American Art, and the Princeton Art Museum. He has been exploring digital image-making since 1990 and exhibits this work both as exhibition prints and online. He currently lives in Portsmouth, NH.

Desire of Relief: Images of human bodies are broken down into simplified components of abstracted color and image-derived lines and forms. I aim for a tension between appreciating the formal elements in the shallow relief and the hint of the original photograph while recognizing the hedonic elements of the images.
