Tod Seelie. Let’s Stick To Landscapes.

Being a skeptic of the field of landscape photography, I was shocked when the work of Tod Seelie changed my mind. After perusing (and loving) his landscape collection I was more than eager to take a look at his portraits. Alas, I was really disappointed…it seems as if he shoots all his humans subjects as “still life” and in doing so looses the most interesting thing about portraiture; Emotion. With such amazing characters as the ones he shoots I would hope for something more than a rigid figure standing front and center.

However, many seem to disagree with me. His work has been exhibited in New York, Berlin, Tokyo, Paris, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Cleveland, and Miami. And has been featured in some amazing photo books including Backyard Shakedown and Hijacked.
