Ron Cowie On Jurying:
Every important thing that can be done in photography has been done in the first 100 years of its invention. There are very few, if any, frontiers in the field. That said, it is wonderful to see images made with zest and intelligence. Images which challenge, ask as well as answer questions, lean towards mystery and are made with skill hold my attention the most. I can’t tell you what that looks like, only when I see it.
A native of New London, Connecticut, Ted Hendrickson studied photography at the University of Connecticut where he received B.A. and M.F.A. degrees, and at Rhode Island School of Design, where he earned a Master's degree in Art Education. He is currently an associate professor of art at Connecticut College.

During the past 35 years, Ted Hendrickson's photographs have explored the nature of landscape as image. Ranging from the man-made scene of the built environment and the wooded and coastal landscape of Southern New England, to the landscape of Ireland, Hendrickson's laconic personal views can be simultaneously poetic, comic, tragic or mysterious. His work records layers of geologic and human history in a concise, straightforward style without overtly injecting the drama of the picturesque. Current interests include a series of images, Questions for a Stony Landscape, exploring boulders and placed stonework as marking the man-altered landscape and its potential evidence as history, work and ritual.

Hendrickson's work has been featured nationally in numerous one-person and group exhibitions. He received a commission from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts to photograph the towns of New London County for permanent exhibition at the New London County Court House. His work is included in many prestigious public and private collections.
