About Todd Macon
"Art is the proper task of life." --Friedrich Nietzsche
Todd Macon is a portrait and site photographer based in Durango, Colorado. He often uses vintage film cameras and darkroom processes to create images that project a sense of timelessness.
Photography was a new discovery for Todd after a career as teacher, but using cameras to capture the people he admires and the landscapes he loves quickly grew into a passionate endeavor.
"I love the thrill that comes with a well-made image, and then presenting and sharing the image with the subject. I would like the people I photograph to feel that the image belongs in a museum--that their efforts, persona, and humanity are worthy representations of the best of us."
