the gentlewoman

Colin Dodgson

Born and raised in Southern California, the fashion photographer Colin Dodgson grew up with ambitions of being a professional surfer, before an encounter with a 35mm film camera persuaded him to study at the local art college instead. In 2006, he moved to New York, where he worked for arts magazines such as Arkitip and The Journal and staged photography exhibitions in his friend’s SoHo apartment. His dreamy, unexpected editorials are regularly seen in the pages of i-D, British Vogue and Self Service. Colin also shoots campaigns for Vivienne Westwood and Simone Rocha.
