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.
His work been featured in Zoom Magazine, Focus Magazine, Large Format Magazine and is widely collected around the world.
Preuss says of his work, “Through my lens I seek to capture the elegance and natural beauty of the female form, yet secretly wishing to leave traces of their identity forever. My images are studies in light and form, which blend formal and sensual qualities, radiating the individuality of my subjects through their emotion-laced gestures. I feel my images have captured a warmth inner beauty with a poetic and distinct elegance.”
