Brian Allen - faculty at Photographic Center Northwest

Brian Allen has been working in and around documentary photography for 50 years. His recent assignments involve photographing buildings and structures for the Historic American Building Survey or the Historic American Engineering Record (HABS/HAER), using a 4×5 camera and B&W film. He also documents architecture and artifacts using digital cameras and professional lighting equipment. His personal work includes a more playful exploration of the edges of the documentary tradition. Some of these photographs are in the collections of the Museum of the North at the University of Alaska, the Alaska State Museum, and the Anchorage Museum. In addition to teaching at PCNW for many years, Brian has taught at the main campuses of the University of Alaska and the University of Washington. He graduated cum laude from Harvard College in 1976, and earned a Masters in Studio Art from the International Center of Photography/New York University in 1989.
