About Dave Jordano

Though Dave Jordano is now known for his photographic series about urban communities, he first began making photographs in 1968 as a soldier stationed in Nuremberg, Germany, and worked for decades as a commercial photographer. His early works, which he made as a photography student in the early 1970s, featured portraits and street scenes taken in his native Detroit—but he refrained from printing the negatives until the 1990s. In 2001, he began to produce photographic series once more, beginning with “Chicago Bridge Project.” In 2010, Jordano began his project “Unbroken Down,” which functions as a second and contemporary look at Detroit’s daily life. Jordano counts Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bill Rauhauser, and Ansel Adams, among major influences on his practice.

American, b. 1948
