Jan Rosenbaum has been involved in photographic imaging for 40 years. Initially trained as an artist in photography and printmaking, he began teaching at universities and exhibiting widely in the 1970's. While his personal photography centered for many years on a deep investigation of the landscape as a genre for the exploration of the differences between photographic seeing and audience expectations, he maintained an active career as a photojournalist.
After moving to Maine in 1997, he joined the MFA Program at Rockport College/Maine Media College as faculty and MFA Committee Chair. Shortly after he began teaching in the AA and PC programs, as well as summer workshops.
Jan has self-published a book of his personal images, Motel Pools of Lake George: Last Day of Summer, First Day of Fall, 2009. Jan holds a B.F.A. from Wayne State University, an M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art, both in photography; an M.S. in Imaging and Photographic Science from Rochester Institute of Technology; and an M.S. in Management of Technology from Polytechnic University of New York (now NYU).
His work is in the collections of the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Cranbrook Museum, The New Museum, the Evanston Art Galley, the Wayne State University Art History Library, and in private collections. Current work can be seen on his web site, janrosenbaum.com. He is represented by the Caldbeck Gallery in Rockland, Maine.
