Colin Dodgson: Dreamlike Scenes by Fashion Photographer

Fashion and Film Photography by Colin Dogson

Colin Dodgson was born in 1984 in Southern California. He studied at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara where his teachers recognized and supported his talent. After graduation, he moved to New York in 2006 and started to develop own photography style.

Colin Dodgson decided to organize his first exhibition in 2009. The show took place in the empty room on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. For this, he needed a lot of courage. Although the photographer was sure that nobody would come, the exhibition was very successful. He even got an offer to work with The New York Times. A couple years later, he had the second show in an apartment in Soho. Today, the photographer is situated between London and New York working on different projects in the fashion industry and making artistic photos.

His work was published in magazines such as Document Journal,  Pop Magazine, British Vogue, American Vogue, Gentlewoman, I-D,  T Magazine, Re-Edition Magazine, Dazed, Oyster and many others. He photographs for Gucci, DKNY,  Vivienne Westwood, HBA, and Simone Rocha.

His subjects are surrounded by a mystic, calmness environment. For example, his recent project, titled “Free style“, displays fashion details by using soft colors of the background. The pictures show incredible landscapes, deserts, and beaches in Almeira.

Safety, Service and Security Exhibition – in Searching for Life Goals

Colin’s latest exhibition, named “Safety, Service and Security“, is his first in Europe. The project took place in Marseilles (France, 2018) with curator Matt Williams. Colin’s idea was to represent his life between two places – California and London, “the tipping point between modernism and romanticized-nostalgia, and the longing that arises therein“. The inspiration for these photos, as the photographer claims, comes from a basic human need to feel safe and secure, but also to have a purpose in this world.
