Tillman Crane’s distinctive platinum photographs combine 19th century materials with a 21st century aesthetic. From photojournalist to teacher and artist he has honed his technique and mastered his craft over the past 35 years. He made his first platinum print in 1987 and since 2001 his work has been exclusively shown as platinum prints. He works with 5×7, 8×10 and 5×12 view cameras. Today’s images focus on the unique sense of place he finds in the ordinary, everyday locations where he lives and teaches.
Tillman has published four limited edition books: Tillman Crane/Structure (2001), Touchstones (2005), Odin Stone(2008), and A Walk Along the Jordan (2009). For the discriminating collector, Tillman collaborates using images of your choice to create one-of-a-kind handmade books of platinum prints.
A skilled teacher, his workshops offer a variety of locations for all levels of expertise and camera formats. Tillman holds workshops throughout the U.S., U.K. and China. If the workshop schedule doesn’t meet your needs let him customize a one-on-one tutorial of your design.
