Mel Curtis

Mel Curtis, a working artist and photographer has lived in Seattle since 1984. In the late 70's he quit his job to pursue photography full time. This was a thriving time for photography as an art form. Working with a handheld camera and infrared film, he created haunting images of an urban scape dominated by marble monoliths and statues of long deceased statesmen. An urban scape void of people.
