In about one hour Cole Thompson will make the case that black and white is the perfect medium for any subject…except for one. Cole will show work from his various portfolios including:

  • The Ghosts of Auschwitz-Birkenau
  • Harbinger
  • Ceiling Lamps
  • Moai, Sitting for Portrait
  • The Lone Man
  • And others

Interspersed between the images Cole will share his photographic philosophies, such as:

  • Never listen to others
  • Photographic Celibacy
  • Cole’s Rule of Thirds
  • Equipment is overrated
  • Vision is the most important tool in my toolbox
  • And many others!

At the end of his presentation Cole will answer questions and give away a print of The Angel Gabriel.

About Cole

Cole Thompson is uniquely unqualified to speak on photography.

“I’ve never taken a photography class or a workshop. I don’t have a degree in art. I’ve never worked as a photographer. I don’t have gallery representation. I’m not a Canon Explorer of Light. And I only have three lenses and none of them are primes.

Do I have any qualifications? Just one…my images. Nothing else matters.”
