Todd Lucas

BIOGRAPHY

Throughout his career Todd has worked with technology in a variety of ways from research and development to manufacturing for corporations. He has taught digital media in one form or another for the past 19 years at universities in Texas. He ventured early into the digital imaging during its toddler years of the 90’s. Over the years his experience in imaging has lead him down many paths of artistic creativity and industrial research that continue to this day.

ARTIST STATEMENT

The ability to capture and present a view or an exact moment in time has always fascinated me. Yet, although I have enjoyed photography since childhood, years of commercial work greatly diminished this fascination. In recent years the technology associated with digital photography and digital imaging has improved dramatically, calling me back to my old interests. However, it is not the fl ash, bang, and whistles of the Internet that draws me, but instead the integration of formalistic art principles, the camera, and the computer, as well as the chance to bypass the hazardous chemistry and darkroom techniques traditional to my craft. My current body of work is a return to the foundations of design and composition in  photography, a return to the basics with a modern, technical twist.
