about RetrogradeAmnesiaArt


Welcome. My name is Ian and I Thank You for for visiting my page.

I shoot exclusively film, 35mm & Medium Format.

I am based near Hudson, New York, which is a little over a 2 hour drive north of N.Y.C., and 30 minutes South of Albany.

My aim is to create images that transcend Beauty and Aesthetics, to capture a glimpse of one’s Soul. These are often depicted in Dark, Ethereal, Haunting, or Edgy images.

I shoot using only available light, be it the sun, moon, a streetlight, candle, or a motorcycle headlight. I prefer to work outdoors in locations that are decayed, decrepit, or otherwise unique in nature.

I value the skill and vision required to compose an image in the viewfinder. If I feel I need to crop a photo then I've failed at my job. Post editing is virtually nil... it's film.
