Norman Sanders is an internationally exhibited photographer whose work ranges from social commentary to surrealist imagery. He is also the former president and technical director of a color lithography firm in New York City that served museums, art book publishers and major corporations.
This experience and practical background leads Sanders to concentrate as a teacher on the foundations of art. "The common thread running through the courses I teach is the sharing of vital technical information so that my students may achieve the results they want, on purpose. Our sessions provide instruction in the tools and techniques required to master the craft of photography and its transition, along with practical graphic design, to the printed page." Sanders teaches advanced photography, digital photography and design production, from digital to press, at the Cooper Union School of Art.
Sanders has received professional recognition and support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Eastman Kodak Corporation and Sinar Ltd. He has been featured in Kodak tutorial videos and lectured to professional photographers and graphic designers throughout the country on the subjects of conventional and digital photography and the reproduction of photographs in print media. Sanders is the author of five books: Photographing for Publication, Photographic Tone Control; Photography for Graphic Designers; At Home, a monograph; and The Graphic Designer's Production Handbook.
