Doug Winter is an American conceptual photographic artist and filmmaker whose works are characterized by a preoccupation with light and nonfigurative forms. His non-representational photographs of conventional objects and their environments are derived from the human body’s resilience to adapt and accommodate physical disability.
Upon earning a degree in photography, Doug began his career in Washington D.C., frequently photographing significant events at the White House. Opportunities to photograph two U.S. presidents, heads of state, diplomats, and celebrities helped Doug see the world as a large family.
Soon after graduation, Doug began using experimental techniques in his editorial work, merging traditional photo illustration techniques with portraiture which sparked his enduring curiosity of blending new technologies with historical photographic processes, something he continues to infuse into his work today.
Doug gives back to his community by regularly volunteering at Friendship Park, a facility for unsheltered community members. Over the years, he has created hundreds of portraits of the shelter’s guests which they have used to help gain employment or connect with family.
When he’s not creating photographically, Doug can be found in his home studio forming unique and one of a kind ceramic objects.
