Arnold Doren Photography Artist

Arnold doren

Arnold Doren (1935–2003) was an American photographer. Arnold Doren, known as Doren, was born in Chicago, July 29, 1935, to Hy and Rose Dorenfeld. An encounter with a Graflex camera while working on a high school newspaper led to a dedicated life in photography. After joining the Navy in 1952, he was stationed at San Diego, CA and worked as a submariner running missions to Acapulco. News with Views was the name of the Navy newsletter which published his photographs. A turning point occurred when he enrolled at Rochester Institute of Technology in 1957 where his philosophy and purpose in life were clarified by Minor White, one of the legendary professors. It was the deeply spiritual nature of Minor White along with his knowledge of poetry and Eastern philosophy that affected Doren. Minor put an emphasis on feeling as a way of knowing and realizing a multitude of meanings. A quote by Peter Layton describes Minor's teaching. " He created an atmosphere for constantly questioning ideas or responses." With discipline, practice and sincerity, the students of Minor White often achieved a visual, sensual and personal awareness.
