Jim Dow teaches photography, the history of photography, and contemporary art at Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. His photographs are in the permanent collections of the North Dakota Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, George Eastman House, J. Paul Getty Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art, among others.
"Jim Dow's photographs of North Dakota are at the heart of a very important life's work in photography, and these images eloquently summarize a deeply imaginative people and an astonishing landscape nearly invisible from our two coasts. Marking the Land is a work of grandeur and intimacy, and it is the kind of work that can truly change what we know and what we feel." - Emmet Gowin, Princeton University"
