Alison Nordström is Curator of Photographs at George Eastman House, the oldest and largest museum of photography in the United States. She was the Founding Director and Senior Curator of the Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona Beach, Florida from 1991 to 2002 where she curated over 100 exhibitions of photography including the popular biennial series Fresh Work, as well as major surveys of landscape, portraiture, travel photographs, and journalism. At George Eastman House, she has initiated the contemporary biennial Vital Signs, and has curated Paris: Photographs by Eugene Atget and Christopher Rauschenberg, Why Look at Animals?, and Found: Photographs by Gerald Slota. She writes and lectures extensively on contemporary photography. Nordström holds a PhD in Cultural and Visual Studies.
