Terence has long been recognized as one of the country’s finest master printers using traditional black & white film. He has printed exhibition prints for a roster of distinguished photographers including Richard Avedon, Duane Michals, Philippe Halsman, Horst, Bruce Davidson, Mary Ellen Mark, Eva Rubinstein, Harry Benson, and Inge Morath.

Terence works with a large-format view camera and has taught advanced courses at the International Center of Photography and the Fashion Institute of Technology (both in New York), the Maine Media Workshops, the Santa Fe Photographic Workshop, and Paier College of Art (in Connecticut). He was awarded artist residencies at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in Sweet Briar and the Weir Farm National Historic Park (Connecticut). He has enjoyed solo exhibitions at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art and the John Slade Ely House (both in Connecticut), and the Center for Maine Contemporary Art (in Rockland, Maine) and has exhibited at the Fitchburg Museum of Art (Massachusetts), the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, Maine, and the FIT Art Museum (New York). In the commercial world he has worked on projects for clients such as BMW, Chubb, the New York Times Magazine, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, New York City Ballet, and Estée Lauder.

As our Curator of Photography, Terence applies his own approach to assessing the vision of others, “I am constantly working to keep myself open to the possibilities of photographing something entirely different. I always strive to be a better listener; it allows me to experience something going on between the subject and myself. It’s as if I am tapping into an energy or life emanating from the subject. Essentially, I just keep searching for those “conversations.”
