Jason Stoddart inherited a deep appreciation for the traditional sepia tone, black and white, and hand-tinted methods of photography while apprenticing under his parents, Jack and Lynne Stoddart, who were full-time fine art photographers for more than 30 years. As a fine art photographer, he has been able to transition from silver gelatin photography to the new world of digital photography while still maintaining a traditional style.
“My photographs document traditional Americana culture while utilizing conventional styles of photography. My Americana is defined as the history, geography, folklore and cultural heritage of the United States. Many kinds of material fall within this definition of Americana: license plates or entire vehicles, barns, homes or household objects, artifacts, tools, instruments, flags, plaques, signs and so on.”
“The final step in presenting my images is my choice of an acid free canvas, a lignin free heavyweight cotton-poly blend, featuring a semi-gloss satin surface. All my work is printed and presented using the best archival materials available; materials held to the same standard of excellence as those used by museums.”
