≈ The Photography of Cameron Teller ≈

Poetic expressions of form and light characterize Cameron Teller’s nature photography; his wildlife photographs are sensitive, his landscapes dramatic. As art objects, Cameron works to ensure that the physical qualities of every photograph are always on an equal footing with its subject - neither is subordinate to the other. His goal is to present images that, while accurate depictions of nature, seem to transcend reality with a certain staying power.
Based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Cameron performs the full range of roles in creating his art, from camera work to developing and printmaking. He uses only sunlight in the clear New Mexico sky to bring out each handmade platinum-palladium photograph. The results are often elusive, the outcome subject to the variations of seasonality and weather. Cameron values this participation by nature itself as a meaningful part of making nature photographs worthy of collecting and exhibiting. The papers he uses are the finest quality acid-free cotton rag, and all mounting and framing materials are archival-quality and acid-free.
