Artist Statement 

Jay Dusard, a self taught photographer, earned a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Pulitzer Prize nomination and a couple of book awards. Having studied with Ansel Adams and Frederick Sommer, he established himself as not only a consummate creator of images, but one of the greatest black & white printmakers.

With work published, exhibited and in collections worldwide, Jay Dusard is best known for his black-and-white images of working cowboys and landscapes of the North American West. Jay taught photography for seven years at Prescott College, Arizona, and has conducted workshops for over 30 years. In 1992, he was nominated for the Kodak World Image Award for Fine Art Photography.


Jay Dusard lives with his wife, Kathie, and their horses near Douglas, Arizona, where he finds time to punch cows and play jazz cornet.
