About the Juror
Malcolm Daniel, Curator of Photography, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas

Malcolm Daniel is the Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator of Photography at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, a position he assumed in December 2013 after 23 years on the curatorial staff of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, including 9 years as head of that museum’s Department of Photographs. He received his BA in Studio Art and Art History from Trinity College, Hartford, and his Masters and Doctorate in Art History from Princeton University. A specialist in nineteenth-century French and British photography, he has curated or co-curated many exhibitions focused on key figures in the history of photography and is the author of numerous exhibition catalogues and scholarly articles. He has lectured widely and has served as adjunct professor for Columbia University and the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Although his scholarly work has concentrated on the first 75 years of the medium, Daniel has a keen interest in contemporary photographs and oversees the museum’s acquisitions and exhibitions spanning the full history of photography from its birth to the present day.
