Native Kansan Todd Horner was born and raised amidst the endangered tall grasses of the Flint Hills prairie. It was there in its humbling confines of vast skies and seas of grass that Todd’s interest in and now passion for photography was cultivated. Self taught but technically influenced by an assortment of workshops and classes in high school and college, Todd’s artistic vision ensued. Todd embraces Black and White as a medium, “Color is a duplication of actuality, black and white is an interpretation of reality”. With the mood of the prairie literally changing with the wind, Todd has had to adopt a range of improvisational techniques to capture the moment. He employs 35mm, medium format and digital camera bodies, custom mono, tripods, and shutter release cables. He currently resides in the southern end of the Flint Hills, located in Osage County, Oklahoma.
