Judge for this year’s exhibit was Ed Gallucci of Roanoke, VA. Gallucci is a professional photographer with 45 years of experience. His portraits of musicians and celebrities have been published in Crawdaddy, Rolling Stone, Playboy, and Penthouse, and his editorial photographs have appeared in Business Week, Fortune, US News & World Report, Discover, New York Magazine, Psychology Today and Science magazines, as well as on more than 40 covers of Newsweek.
He is the photographic author of “Hard Corps” collaborating with author Michael Grumley, published by E.P. Dutton in 1977. Gallucci has won over 100 advertising industry awards, including five Andys and two Clios. Thousands of his photographs have appeared on print ads, billboards, book covers, annual reports, catalogs, and brochures.
His works, among them a portrait of Springsteen, are in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art permanent photography collection in Kansas City, Missouri. Ed is one of the first photographers to photograph a young Bruce Springsteen and the future E Street Band for editorial use. The Bruce Springsteen photographs were featured in a one-man show, “The Crawdaddy Years and Beyond”, at Monmouth University October 2012. Monmouth University is home of the Bruce Springsteen library where 40 of Ed’s photographs are part of their permanent collection. Ed has lectured on the art of photography at Monmouth University, Montclair State University and Pratt Institute. Filling a life-long dream, 6 of Ed’s B&W photographs were made part of the Brooklyn Museum’s permanent collection in October of 2013. He is looking forward to a future traveling one-man show at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
Gallucci was born and raised in Park Slope Brooklyn, graduated high school in 1964 Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, studied graphic design and has a BFA in photography from the Kansas City Art Institute 1967-2013. He founded Gallucci Studio, Inc. in New York City in 1978, Sun Dog Ltd in 1994, Gallucci Imaging, Inc. in New Jersey 1999.
He has three grown children and lives with his wife Donna in Roanoke, Virginia.
