Assistant Photography Professor William Knipscher has won the The 2014 Midwest Society for Photographic Education Conference Scholarship, in doing so he will be presenting his work at the conference on Saturday, October 18th, in Madison, Wisconsin.
Knipscher’s work “explores the themes of impermanence and temporality. His work is expressed through a physical manipulation of photography that collapses the boundaries between technology and craft.” His work was a natural fit for the conference as this years theme explores the use of archive within the contemporary photographic and artistic practice.
Knipscher was born in Kensington, MD and grew up on the coast of New Jersey. He received his MFA in Photographic and Electronic Media from the Maryland Institute College of Art and received his BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and Design in 2009. Knipscher has exhibited nationally and his work is held by private collectors, as well as the British Council in Washington, DC. He is an Assistant Professor and Head of the Photography Major at the Art Academy of Cincinnati in Cincinnati, OH.
