Technicolor Life

“There can be plenty of cinema and interesting characters if you pay attention.” –Bill McCullough

Artist Bill McCullough’s vivid color series, “Technicolor Life,” explores the ritual of weddings in the United States. McCullough is a professional photographer who has had unfettered access to the personalities and pageantry of wedding celebrations. His unique style emphasizes the mysterious, more ambiguous side of this phenomenon of modern American life.

“My background is rooted in science and music, which has created in me a deep understanding of patterns and rhythm. I view scenes as giant kinetic events; in that compressed atmosphere, I am constantly moving because time is finite and the number of interesting situations seemingly infinite. I strive for a pure approach to photography, letting moments play out without my interference. My idea of a great photograph is one that transcends its context and allows for many different interpretations. My intent is not to compartmentalize life and art, but to find some space that links the two together.”

Photographer Bill McCullough was born in 1963, in Dickenson, Texas. He graduated with a degree in Plan II economics from the University of Texas at Austin in 1986. He is a self-taught photographer with work published in Spot (Houston Center of Photography) and Photonews. His work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and was has chosen as a 2010 Fotofest discovery. He currently resides and works in Austin, Texas.
