Douglas Prince, an accomplished photographer from New Woodstock, NY, has been working in this medium for the past 20 years. His subject matter has expanded from using the area where he lives to include traveling as an important part of his work. Prince's recent work is a seamless combination of images that are startling and surreal. The floor in the room of a mansion is wall to wall beach with disintegrating sand castles; a field of tulips in the snow dissolves into a cemetery flecked with American flags. The scenes appear in daylight and challenge all our presumptions of fact.

Prince is currently a self-employed photographer. He has been awarded two NEA Fellowships and has exhibited his work extensively. In addition he has taught photography at Northern Kentucky University, Rhode Island School of Design and the University of Florida.
