Edward Sturr was born in Illinois, the "Prairie State", where he practiced and taught photography before moving to Kansas in 1974. His interest in the Kansas landscape resulted in a series on the rock formations near Salina, Kansas. Intensive work on tall grass prairies in the Midwest began in 1990 which led to concentrating on the 8000+ acre Konza Prairie near Manhattan, Kansas. His technical process, hand colored prints, begins with photographing on the Konza. Black and white enlargements are printed which are then meticulously hand colored using a variety of colored pencils. The result is a combination of personal vision, technical mastery, and a unique and crafted use of color. Sturr was awarded a Fellowship in Photography from the National Endowment for the Arts/Mid-America Arts Alliance in 1995 for his hand colored images of the Konza. His work has won awards in regional and national juried exhibitions and is currently represented in the Smithsonian's American Museum of Art, available for viewing on the World Wide Web. His work is also included in the permanent collections, in the National Museums of Canada, Quebec, the Museum of the Chicago Art Institute, and the George Eastman House, Rochester, New York.
