About the Artist

Born in California, Cooper has spent many of the past years in Scotland. He is the founding Head of Photography at Glasgow College of Art. Cooper travels extensively, preparing for days or weeks to capture a great photo. His works are meditative, almost philosophical images, printed by the artist in the 19th century manner using layers of silver and gold chloride.
