Anthony Bannon

This past weekend, The Photo Review recognized Anthony Bannon with its 2018 Photo Review award.

Anthony Bannon served as the former director of the George Eastman Museum located in Rochester, NY. The George Eastman Museum is the world’s oldest photography museum, containing one of the world’s oldest film archives, with world renowned collections related to photography and cinema. Hundreds of thousands of photographs, items of camera technology, motion picture titles, and millions of publicity stills and posters, in addition to contemporary works, comprise the museum’s full collection. Home to the world’s most comprehensive libraries of books, manuscripts, and journals, the museum has pioneered film preservation and photographic conservation while educating archivists on a global level. The George Eastman Museum has been a National Historic Landmark since 1966.
After serving sixteen years as the museum’s seventh director, Anthony Bannon retired in 2012. Accomplishments during his tenure include launching programs in photo and film preservation, acquiring the Technicolor and Merchant Ivory Productions archives, and establishing an online presence for the museum’s images. Bannon was also present for the museum’s launch of three internationally renowned graduate and post-graduate schools of film and photograph preservation and conservation. These include The L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation, which offers a master’s degree in film preservation in conjunction with the University of Rochester, in addition to the Eastman Museum and the University of Rochester, which jointly offer a master's degree program in Photograph Preservation and Collections Management.
Anthony’s educational background and early career are equally admirable. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Biology at St. Bonaventure University in 1964, a master’s degree in English with a concentration in criticism and film in the Center for Media Study from the State University of New York in Buffalo in 1976, and finally a Ph.D. in English with a concentration in Cultural Studies from the State University of Buffalo. From 1969 to 1985 he worked as a journalist for The Buffalo News as the newspaper’s film, video, and architecture critic, later focusing on the fine and camera arts. From 1985 to 1996 he served as director of the Burchfield-Penney Art Center — dedicated to the work and archives of American watercolorist Charles Burchfield — at the State University of New York College at Buffalo. Finally from 1994 to 1996, Bannon was the State University of New York College at Buffalo assistant vice president and director of cultural affairs.

Bannon’s recognition was for his contributions to the art of photography. The event took place at the University of the Arts, Caplan Studio Theater, in Philadelphia.

The latest competition sponsored by Stephen Perloff’s  The Photo Review, is over and the 2009 winners announced (Juried by Lesley Martin, Publisher, Aperture Book Program). The Grand Prize went to Daniel Traub of Philadelphia.

Our favorite of the competition, for his Black and White work, was Shigei Yoshida of Brooklyn. His overwhelming shadows and special use of light particularly impresses the viewer.

We wish to “plug” the Photo Review and the ancillary publications Mr. Perloff is associated with in this field of photo collection. All are excellent resources for fine art photography lovers.

The Photo Review is a critical journal of national scope and international readership. Publishing since 1976, the Photo Review covers photography events throughout the country and serves as a central resource for the Mid-Atlantic region. With incisive reviews, exciting portfolios, lively interviews, the latest in books and exhibitions, The Photo Review quarterly journal has earned a reputation as one of the best serious photography publications being produced today.
