Ted Preuss, a self-taught photographer, was born 1962 in Colorado. For as long as he can remember, he has been taking photographs. He picked up his first camera at the age of seven and instantly became obsessed with the nature of the medium. Preuss uses traditional techniques, including a vintage view camera with century old lenses. The process of making prints is as important to him as the practice of creating photographs. He chose platinum palladium as a medium for its distinct vintage quality and archival properties.
