Denny Moers, Chromgenic print by Lucas Foglia

Denny Moers is known for his highly imaginative, technically innovative monoprints created by controlling the action of light on the chemicalsensitized photographic paper during the print developing process, giving his black and white photographs an extraordinary range of tonalities. He has photographed subject matter as diverse as New England architecture, medieval wall frescoes and tomb reliefs, contemporary constructions sites and western landscapes and dwellings. Denny Moers was born in Detroit, M.I. in 1953. He received his MFA from the Visual Studies Workshop in 1977. During the early eighties, he worked as Aaron Siskind’s first assistant. He is currently teaching at Roger Williams University. His photographic monoprints are included in numerous public and private collections, including the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover, M.A.; the Baltimore Museum of Art; the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris; the Museum of Fine Arts’, Boston and Huston; the Israel Museum in Jerusalem; the High Museum of Art in Atlanta; and the Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City.
