William Jaeger, Instructor in the Art Department since 1991, currently teaches History of Photography and Art Criticism. His work is purist black and white large format photography, unapologetically Modernist. His work has been shown in dozens of area exhibitions, most recently in 2009 in a two-person show at the Albany Center Gallery off Broadway. His work is in several corporate and private collections. He was the winner of the Center for Photography at Woodstock Photographer's Fund competition in 1986 (Andres Serrano, juror), more recently an SOS support stipend through NYSCA, and in 2008, a faculty support award for ongoing photography of the University at Albany campus. He was art critic for the Times Union for seven years, and continues to write non-fiction and fiction alongside his photography. He received his MFA in Photography at Rochester Institute of Technology in 1984.
