Todd Walker - My Father
Todd Walker (1917 – 1998) was one of the first photographers to use digital imaging processes to make art. Born in Salt lake City and reared in Los Angeles, Walker established himself as a successful commercial photographer in the early 1950s, a career he later gave up to pursue his artistic interests. Starting in the 1960s with “alternative processes” - non silver-gelatin techniques for making photographs – Walker developed a unique and personal visual language that runs through the last three decades of his work. In 1981 he started using digital processing to extend his photographic process and became proficient at computer programming to create the tools he needed.
