Juror

We are pleased to announce the juror for the 2020 competition is Brownie Harris, acclaimed national photographer.

Whether photographing the luminaries of our time or ordinary people at work in factories and on farms, Harris has always remain focused on telling the story of his subjects.

After receiving his BFA in Communication Arts & Design from Virginia Commonwealth University, Harris headed to New York City, where he spent time driving a taxi, painting lofts, and working as a photo assistant. He landed a job as Graphic Designer for the Educational Broadcasting Corporation and soon after, at 22, created the photography department for the New York City PBS affiliate.

Since then, Harris’ portfolio has vastly grown to include portraiture, architectural photography, work for television and film production, and lifestyle and travel photography on location around the world.

For more than 40 years, Harris has traveled on assignment, creating iconic portraitures of John F. Kennedy, Jr., Carly Simon, Stephen King and Paul Newman; doing photography work for film and prime-time television productions, including Sleepy Hollow, Revolution and most recently, The Act, a Hulu original series.

After spending years living in New York and Paris, Harris today calls Wilmington, North Carolina, home.
