Stephen Perloff is the founder and editor of The Photo Review, a critical journal of international scope publishing since 1976, and editor of The Photograph Collector, the leading source of information on the photography art market. He has taught photography and the history of photography at numerous Philadelphia-area colleges and universities and has been the recipient of two grants from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts for arts criticism. He was the recipient of the Sol Mednick Award for 2000 from the Mid-Atlantic region of the Society for Photographic Education and the first annual Vanguard Award from the Philadelphia Center for the Photographic Image in 2007.

His photographs have appeared in numerous exhibitions and reside in many museum and private collections. His exhibition, "Unseen Color, Part I," was shown at The Light Room Gallery, Philadelphia, in March and April 2012. His work was recently included in the exhibitions "An Evolving Legacy: Twenty Years of Collecting at the Michener Art Museum" at the James A.
