About Jack Ludlam
There is something to be said for the person that steers away from the mechanical manifestations of the
modern day world. This type of person might disregard monetary gain in order to produce a good or service
that is truly reliable and often gets neglected or even forgotten in the fast paced, commercial world that we
have constructed. Rather than encouraging mass production, cheap prices, and convenience, we as part of a
community can look to these craftspeople for inspiration and guidance.
The inspiration gained from these "makers" (those who work with their hands), led Jack to embrace
traditional film photography rather than digital processes. Support from his family enabled him to purchase
his first film camera, a Hasselblad 500cm. In 2013, Jack graduated from Regis University with a BA in Visual
Arts (with an emphasis in photography). The practice and tangibility of shooting and working in the dark
room and producing photographs with his hands immediately connected with Jack, allowing him to create
his own process in celebrating the handmade artisan spirit.
