Terry Flynn

Story       Gallery

"I have no interest in casual quality or content. Carbro is the finest and my photographs require as much effort from me as would a painting or etching."

Terry Flynn was born in 1953 in Elmira, NY. He has been working in photography for nearly 20 years. He studied art at Indiana University and the Fort Wayne Art Institute in Indiana before becoming an apprentice to a motion picture producer for four years. The next eight years were spent concentrating exclusively on all aspects of still photography in a regimen of self©education. His approach was deliberate, placing as much importance on printmaking as on subject matter. In 1982 he released his first work in dye transfer and immediately gained national attention. It was at this time Flynn began reformulating the old monochrome carbro technique and, after relocating his studio to Carmel By The©Sea, began working exclusively in this medium.

"I have no interest in casual quality or content. Carbro is the finest and my photographs require as much effort from me as would a painting or etching."

Perhaps it is this philosophy and dedication that has resulted in Flynn being considered a master early in his career by such notables as the International Museum of Photography at George Eastman House. His work may be found in both public and private collections throughout the country.
