The American West – Sand Sea Stone & Snow Black & White Photography by Doremus Scudder


Doremus Scudder spent his childhood and early adulthood in Southern Oregon, attending Phoenix-Talent schools and graduating from (then) Southern Oregon State College.

He works exclusively in black-and-white, using large-format cameras and film, and hand-crafts silver-gelatin prints in the darkroom using traditional photographic techniques. Nothing is done using digital technology.

For Doremus, the function of art is to enrich and uplift the human spirit through excellence and beauty: it is to this end that he strives. The photographs themselves are their own best description, expressing their wordless world powerfully and eloquently. They are able to be appreciated on many levels, being rich in immediate impact as well as yielding ever more profundity and detail over time. 

Doremus Scudder’s work is exhibited widely and represented in numerous galleries and private collections throughout the United States and Europe. More of his work can be seen at his website:
