Donald Woodman

Donald Woodman

I have been a photographer for over forty-five years. I trained in the early 1970's with Minor White, who came out of the 20th century modernist photographic tradition established by Alfred Steiglitz that defined such luminaries as Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Paul Strand and Imogen Cunningham.

In 1972, I moved to southern New Mexico to work at a solar observatory where I expanded my technical skills by working on projects that involved photographing the sun. On my own, I did night sky photography which further honed my expertise. Much later, I studied a variety of digital photographic and printing techniques which allowed me to develop a unique style melding traditional and digital photography, choosing to do all my own printing, often in large scale.

Over the years, I’ve worked on a range of subjects, both alone and in collaboration with my wife, the artist Judy Chicago. My solo work has included landscapes and portraiture, as well as an in-depth look at masculinity as practiced in the rodeo. I also created an intimate series of self-portraits documenting four years of intensive therapy. My work is characterized by a subversive perspective and a quirky sense of humor.

While working on a recently published memoir of my seven years as Agnes Martin’s assistant (1977 - 1984), I began to explore my lifelong fascination with the vast landscape of the southwest and the focal point of the horizon line – where earth and sky meet. For most of my career, New Mexico has provided me with a respite from some of the unbearable excesses of civilization. I have chosen to stay out of the limelight in order to preserve the freedom to pursue my personal vision.
