Your list has always been interesting, idiosyncratic, imaginative and your translations [...] have been a source of pleasure to me.

  • About
  • Judith Aronson has a BA in American Studies from the University of Michigan, and from Yale University a master’s in City Planning and an MFA in Graphic Design. For three years in the 1970s she travelled and worked in south-east Asia, including a year assisting the photographer and director of the Insight Guides, Hans Hoefer. Aronson credits much of her photographic knowledge to this experience. For twelve years Aronson lived in England, where she worked as a graphic designer and photojournalist for, among others, the Telegraph Sunday Magazine. Residing in Boston since 1986 and returning to England for the summers, she has practised graphic design and photography while teaching at Boston University, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and the New England School of Art and Design. Now full-time in the Communications Department at Simmons College, she teaches graphic design. In 2003 she received a grant from the Colleges of the Fenway to develop and co-teach an environmental design course, Wayfinding: Information Architecture and Public Spaces. Three exhibitions of Aronson’s portrait work, Faces (1998-9), featured photographs of writers and artists. Many of these photographs appeared in The Threepenny Review in 2003. In 2006, the Isole Gallery of Art and Industrial Design, Boston, held a two-part retrospective of her colour photographs entitled Tactile Mercantile. Likenesses consists of both photographic portraits and reflections and was published in May 2010.
