Biography

Photographer Jeff Curto is Professor and Coordinator of the Photography Program at College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, where he has taught since 1984. Courses frequently taught include History of Photography (which has its own podcast), Tools & Techniques for Digital Photography, Advanced Digital Imaging and Extended Photographic Projects. His teaching efforts earned him an Honorable Mention in the Santa Fe Center for Photography’s annual Teacher of the Year - Patron Saint of Photography award for 2007.

Prior to employment at College of DuPage, Jeff worked extensively as a freelance photographer, specializing in event and public relations photography, architectural interiors and exteriors, portrait and product photography. Further, Jeff spent time in the photo-processing industry, working primarily as a custom photographic printer in both B&W and color.

Illinois Wesleyan University awarded Jeff a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1981 and a he earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from Bennington College in Vermont in 1983. Additionally, he attended Ansel Adams’ last workshop in Carmel, California in the summer of 1983.

Jeff has photographed extensively in Italy since 1989. He’s fascinated with the evidence of the hands of those men and women who have, for centuries, shaped the visual splendor of Italian structures and landscapes. Those hands have established a casual coexistence with antiquity; a subtle layering of the ancient and the everyday, informed by the famed Italian sense of proportion, beauty and attention to minute details of life and living.
