About the Art and Artist

Cathaleen Curtiss, an award winning photojournalist and editor, recently turned her talents to making compelling images using her iPhone.  For the last 3 plus years she has made a point to create one image per day.  These often-playful images of daily life make the point that Cathaleen often stresses - "The best camera is the one that you have with you!" 

As a photojournalist, she has documented events from Super Bowls to Superpower Summits, covering three presidential administrations and handling daily assignments and international news.  An active member in the National Press Photographers Association, Curtiss was recognized as Photographer of the Year by the White House News Photographers Association in 1990.

As Vice President of Global Photography at AOL, Cathaleen built and managed a global staff of visual content editors who created visual presentations for AOL worldwide.  Cathaleen was a visionary in creating and successfully leading a staff in the US, Europe, Mexico and India to support the ongoing need for visual content on AOL. Growing the staff from 2 photo editors in 1997 to over 80 by 2009, Cathaleen played a key role in expanding the use of photojournalism online.  The photography department under her direction accounted for over 12 billion page views a year.  She also oversaw the direction, development and implementation of AOL Visions.

Currently, Cathaleen is Director of Entrepreneurship at Daemen College; managing director of JPGmag; board member of the National Press Photographers Foundation (NPPF), National Clip Chair for the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) and a member of the board for CenterSpace. She also writes a blog "As I See It".  

Also in conjunction with As I See It: iPhone Photography by Cathaleen Curtiss, CEPA will stream the submissions from the public component of Visions of Greater Buffalo 2012.  CEPA Gallery asked the general public to submit their photographic visions of greater Buffalo taken with their camera phones.  All submissions will be projected in a slideshow format in the underground gallery for the run of Curtiss' exhibition.  More information on Visions of Greater Buffalo can be found at
