Donald Woodman

Donald Woodman seamlessly moves between the world of fine art photography and commercial photography. Moreover, his fine art images have been reproduced in numerous photographic catalogues. Woodman has also produced the photographic work for all of Judy Chicago’s gallery catalogues and art books. Donald taught photography at the University of New Mexico, Valencia Campus from 1998 to 2002. In the fall semester of 2001 he team taught with Judy Chicago at Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, KY. Woodman’s students documented the project titled At Home, the transformation of a house into a work of art.

The 25 students, under the direction of Chicago and Woodman, revisited the subject of home 30 years after Chicago’s ground breaking Womanhouse project which was created in California in 1972. The students dealt with subjects that included history, generational perspective, self-image, prejudice and rape.  In the fall of 2003, Chicago and Woodman again team taught, facilitating an ambitious inter-institutional, multi-site project in Pomona and Claremont, CA, titled Envisioning the Future. His work has been included in exhibitions both nationally and internationally. His work has been published in magazines including Time Magazine, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Art in America, ARTNews, Preservation Magazine and New York Newsday.
