Thomas Dodd: Making a career out of fine art photography


December 2017 issue Profiles

It wasn’t anything he’d had in mind for the session. But suddenly it was perfect. “The makeup artist brought the model in to show me the makeup, and the model had hot rollers in her hair,” photographer Thomas Dodd explains. “I was like, ‘Oh, oh, come here, come here, come here!’”The model wasn’t amused, he admits. “She’s like, ‘I can’t believe he’s taking my picture.’” But the profile portrait he made served as the foundation for what he deems his first iconic...

Alex Timmermans’ journey into wet plate collodion photography


October 2017 issue Profiles

It happens all the time. We read a book, imagining the characters a certain way—the color of their hair, their height and mannerisms, the register of their voice—and then the book is made into a movie and none of the actors align with our vision. “I found the book more interesting than the film,” we say. It’s the same with photographs, explains Alex Timmermans.Timmermans abandoned digital photography in 2009 for the slower and more challenging wet plate collodion process that was...

Wildlife photography from the ground up


August 2017 issue Profiles

David Yarrow is perspiring. It’s another sweltering 90-plus degree day in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park and the arid climate is sapping his energy and his patience. The park’s name means “place of dust” and it comprises 150-square miles of flat, largely featureless land on the border of Kenya and Tanzania. Yarrow has come with the hope of photographing lions and perhaps elephants, as he has done many times before. However, during his several days here, wildlife sightings have been...

Such is “Alterego” by New York-based photographer Ben Zank, whose subjects rarely reveal their faces, and when they do, they don’t make eye contact.“I used to shoot people’s faces often,” says Zank, “and I would say that when you shoot somebody’s face, you’re shooting their likeness, their personality, and that’s not...

What is Jerry Uelsmann up to with his photomontages? You’ll have to figure IT out yourselfAs he leads a visitor through his modernist Florida home and into his three-room photo studio that’s chockablock with cartoons (some naughty, some nice) pinned to the walls, shelf after shelf of antique cameras, assorted doll heads, offbeat toys, drawings from artist friends, witty posters, miscellaneous Victoriana, thousands of contact sheets, prints, and more flotsam and jetsam that’s washed up...
