Richard Coda has been photographing since he was a teenager. In college, he fell in love with images made with large-format cameras. Starting with a 4"x5" view camera, he soon moved up to an 8"x10" camera and, most recently, has begun working with an 11"x14" camera. While he photographed landscapes early in his career, recently his work has focused on that which has been overlooked, forgotten, or looked at but not seen. He finds compositions where others see the ordinary, or nothing at all. While concentrating on black and white for most of his career, Richard has found a new love for color, using color as the subject, while still retaining his classical aesthetic for form, line, and tone.
