Brief Biography

Harrison Judd is a photographer, digital artist and creative archivist. Born in Danbury, Connecticut in 1961, he has also lived and worked in New York and California.

His artwork has been exhibited in galleries, museums and in public spaces - and is held by both private and corporate collections. A solo exhibition is planned for spring 2016 at Eastern Connecticut State University’s Akus gallery.

Often collaborating with his wife and creative partner of 20 years,
June Bisantz, they have also originated and produced many public art projects, including The Screen Project, The Portrait Project and End of an Era. They won a CT Main Street Center Excellence Award in 2013 for their integration of history, future vision and community engagement.

Clients have included the NFL, Southern CT Gas, the Charles Ives Center, state and national election campaigns, Lucie Arnaz, and most recently, over a decade and a half as the creative archivist for the world renowned illustrator
Maurice Sendak.

Whether working with individual artists, ad agencies, corporations or universities, Harrison always strives to bring a thoughtful and imaginative approach, combined with a wide range of experience - helping people achieve both creative and practical goals.
