Todd Eberle to receive the 2017 JSI Excellence in Photography Award from Woodbury University’s Julius Shulman Institute

On May 4, 2017, Woodbury University’s Julius Shulman Institute will honor photographer Todd Eberle with the prestigious JSI Excellence in Photography Award. Eberle studied at The Cooper Union in New York and was Vanity Fair’s Photographer at Large for over 20 years. Todd Eberle is an acclaimed New York City-based photographer whose work is united by a clean and analytical minimalist aesthetic. Eberle’s subjects run the gamut from political, art, and cultural figures to architectural landmarks and technology.

In addition to the award, an exhibit of Mr. Eberle’s work, Todd Eberle: Empire of Space, curated by Audrey Landreth, will be at Woodbury University’s Hollywood Outpost (WUHO), from May 4 – June 25th. The opening will be May 4th.

Eberle gained international recognition for his photographs of Donald Judd’s art and furniture that he made at the artist’s request at The Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, and elsewhere around the world in the 1990’s. Those photographs culminated in the book, “Donald Judd Raume/Spaces” (Hatje/Cantz) in 1993. Informed by this experience, Eberle’s photographs are characterized by an ever-present sense of control, proportion, and symmetry.

Eberle’s first major monograph, “Empire of Space” with contributions by Graydon Carter, Dave Hickey and Glenn O’Brien was published by Rizzoli in 2011.

Previous JSI Excellence in Photography Award honorees include Helene Binet, Iwan Baan, James Welling, and Catherine Opie. Presentation of the award will be by Barbara Bestor, executive director of the JSI at Woodbury University.
