Colin Winterbottom

Romantic and haunting, dramatic and serene, Colin Winterbottom's photographs offer a fresh perspective on the nation's capital. Rather than documenting the city as we see it day-to-day, Winterbottom combines compelling compositions and unique perspectives to infuse the urban landscape with mood and challenge the prevailing (and rather stale) sense of the city. He has applied the same vision to his photographs of New York, more limited studies of Paris and Moscow, and series featuring other areas of the U.S.

A self-taught photographer, Colin's work has gained recognition over the last dozen years, and he is now one of the area's prominent fine arts photographers. Mr. Winterbottom has been awarded grants from the District of Columbia Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions Washington-area galleries, including The Alla Rogers Gallery, the Zenith Gallery, the Wilson Center Gallery, Project Space Gallery, Rivaga Gallery, and the Ellipse Gallery.
