Dave Jordano was born in Detroit in 1948 and currently lives and works in Chicago, IL. He received a BFA in photography from the College for Creative Studies in 1974, and has worked as a successful commercial photographer since 1977. Jordano returned to fine art photography in 2001, when he began the series Chicago Bridge Project. In 2010, responding to the negative press coverage of his hometown of Detroit, Jordano begun a photographic series bearing “witness to what has survived and those who are left to cope with it.” Titled Detroit- Unbroken Down, the series will be the subject of a Powerhouse Books publication due in the fall of 2015. Jordano's photographs are held in several public, private and corporate collections including the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Boston, MA, the Museum of Fine Art, Houston, Houston, TX, and the Detroit Institute of Arts.
