Exhibitor History

Chelle Caldwell
Woodinville, WA USA

I am drawn back to film photography in this fast paced digital era we live in simply for its beautiful complexities. Film is where it began without knowing the results until it is developed and fixed. I am in love with textures, the imperfections and the perfections, and experimenting without re-inventing the wheel. Showcasing people and faces today with the light shining on their soul and telling their story in a single portrait or series of portraits brings back the nostalgia of the 19th century photographers to which I have great respect and appreciation. I look to the past for inspiration from Julia Margaret Cameron I look to the present for inspiration from Nicole Caldwell (no relation) and Catherine Just I like the idea of being in the company of strong women who are astounding artists.
