Douglas R. Nickel Andrea V. Rosenthal Professor of History of Art and Architecture

My area of concentration within the field of art history is the history of photography. I studied modern art and photography at Princeton, under Prof. Peter Bunnell, and was awarded a doctoral degree in 1995. I served ten years as a curator at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, where I organized traveling exhibitions on the work of Carleton Watkins and Lewis Carroll as well as projects investigating themes such as the snapshot. Prior to my arrival at Brown, I was director of the Center for Creative Photography and associate professor of art history at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
