Jordan Reznick, PhD

Instructor II

Jordan Reznick (they/them) is a transgender artist and photo historian. Reznick's research looks at how histories of colonialism and gender shape our understanding of photography’s ontological characteristics. Meanwhile Reznick's artwork mines the historical discourse of photography to draw out aspects of the medium’s role in constructing race, gender, and colonialism. Their work has been exhibited at Aperture Gallery and Handwerker Gallery in New York, Portland Art Museum in Oregon, and Romer Young Gallery and SOMArts in San Francisco. Reznick's work is featured in New Queer Photography (Verlag Kettler, 2020) by Benjamin Wolbergs.
