The US Capitol
Washington DC

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.

Gothic Resilience

Washington National Cathedral
Observation Gallery, 7th Floor of the West Towers
Cathedral visitor admission fee may apply; No fee all day Sunday

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 essays

As 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.
