EVIDENCE OF PERSONALITY AND IDENTITY
My photography in this project is about the assignment of personality and identity. Within the first three minutes of meeting a new person or situation, human nature drives us to appraise, classify, and designate an identity for each encounter. This primal instinct served humanity well for survival but causes much separation and conflict in modern society.
I create odd images whose intent and point of view is purposefully ambiguous, prompting the viewer to assign their own meaning to the photograph. By triggering the viewer, I hope they will realize the interpretation is a reflection of their own views, past and biases, and has no reality in the image. I want viewers to reconsider their profoundly entrenched or controversial preconceptions for validity, opening the door to a more empathetic and tolerant union with the world.
Much like Robert Frank’s exploration of the American society, I travel solo throughout the South searching for evidence of personality expressed or identity stated, either by the person or by their hand upon their environment. I primarily seek such manifestations that could be construed to have drastically different meanings, thus opening the door for viewers to become aware of their assessments and question the validity of such.

Growing up as the son of two professional artists in the conservative mid-twentieth century South influenced Todd's perception of contemporary culture. Often being that artistic kid on the fringe of normal, his position as an outlier made him a vigilant observer of people, places, and situations.
A successful career as a salon owner, and stylist, Todd worked closely with people to express their sense of identity. Much of his photographic work seeks to find, document, and tell these unique stories.
For decades, Todd photographed commercially to support his business and in 2010 restructured his life to focus on artistic work. Since then, his work has been exhibited in both group and solo exhibitions in the Southeast region.
