A high school English teacher for over twenty years, Dallas Crow co-taught a course at Breck School with an art teacher in which students combined language and images. His own poetry, fiction, and nonfiction have been published in numerous periodicals, anthologies, and on the sidewalks of St. Paul. His chapbook, Small, Imperfect Paradise, was published by Parallel Press at the University of Wisconsin. His photographs have appeared in galleries around the United States and internationally, and on the covers of multiple books and magazines. His solo exhibition, The Other Border, was mounted at Praxis in the fall of 2018. Dallas recently moved to Georgia to pursue new adventures in fine art photography and education.
