BIO
Pradip Malde was born in 1957 in Arusha, Tanzania. Since graduating from the Glasgow School of Art in 1980, he has lived and worked as a photographic artist and teacher in Scotland and Tennessee.
He was appointed Lecturer in Photographic Arts at Napier University, Edinburgh in April 1985. His first trip to the USA, also in 1985, ultimately resulted in a long-term involvement with the Imogen Cunningham Trust. This included making platinum/palladium prints from Cunningham's negatives, curating a number of exhibitions of her work in the USA and in Europe, and authoring the book "The Poetry of Form". This first visit also introduced Malde to Sewanee, TN and the University of the South, where he is currently appointed as Professor of Fine Arts. He has also taught, in the past few years, summer sessions at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, California State University at Long Beach, and Anderson Ranch, CO among others.
Works are held in numerous collections, including the Museum of the Art Institute of Chicago; Houston Museum of Fine Art, Houston, TX; Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, AZ; Princeton University Museum, Princeton, NJ; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Scottish Arts Council, Edinburgh; the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh; the Arts Council Of Great Britain, London; The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Collection, London; The British Council, London, The Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; and The Royal Photographic Society Collection at the National Museum of Film, Photography and Television, England.
