Colin Winterbottom's photographs of the urban landscape are romantic and haunting, dramatic and serene. His photographs are born of a heightened sensitivity to place, and especially to the emotional impact on the observer of man's constructed environments.

My first museum exhibition features photograph I made from post-earthquake inspections to scaffolding and repair at the Washington monument and National Cathedral. The broadest project I've been involved with, the exhibit includes a mix of fine art, documentary, and technical photographs, as well as some time lapse video. For details, see the Building Museum site here.

This exhibition looked great at Long View gallery as reviewed in the Washington Post here. See it in it's long term home -- the Cathedral itself.
This exhibition previews an ongoing collaboration between Colin Winterbottom and the National Cathedral. With rare access to the Cathedral's heights and depths, Winterbottom is making dynamic photographs of areas recovering from the 2011 earthquake as well as spaces whose powerful beauty remains unshaken. Preview the exhibit in this gallery.
New book includes two Winterbottom photo essaysAs Brooklyn's historic Green-Wood
Cemetery prepared to mark their 175th anniversary, they commissioned Mr. Winterbottom to shoot two original photo essays -- one
focusing on the monuments and sculptures and a second on mausoleum
interiors. The book also includes essays by many scholars and historians (including two Pulitzer Prize winners). Check it out at the website -- special price for the first few weeks! Preview a few of the photos I contributed in this gallery.
