Lindsay Thompson

United States of America

I was born on December 23, 1991 in Reading Pennsylvania. Seven years later I received my first camera; a birthday gift from my grandparents. The rest is history. I spent the next few months turning my basement into a studio and taking glamour shots of the family dog. After all, as a seven year old, I didn't exactly have the clientele of actual people.

Since I've gone to school, I've learned that this hobby of mine has truly become a passion. I graduated with a BFA in photography from Tyler School of Art in May of 2014. Photography calls for experiences to make art. It relies on seeing things and meeting people. As I look at life through a camera, I am able to interact with so many and see the world all while doing the thing I love; creating art. It does not, however, mean that I wish to give up the personal expression inherent in drawing or painting. Therefore, I use mixed media to create my images, helping them to become something more out of the ordinary. Each layer of ink and paint works to obscure reality and transform stand-still images into figments of my imagination.
