"Caswell’s tintypes point to a resurgence of historic processes seen in Maine and elsewhere. With Transient Salesman, he affords us a vicarious look at
the bohemian counterculture of hipsterism that exists with effortless cool on the margins of Americana."

Cole Caswell researches the remnants and patterns in our landscape that reflect contemporary strategies of survival. Through strata of observation,
technology, subjectivity, and his surroundings, Caswell investigates geography and its impact on our perceived ability to survive. He uses traditional,
historic and digital photographic media—including tintypes, environmental data sets, and augmented sampling procedures—to investigate our present
condition. Cole received an interdisciplinary M.F.A. from the Maine College of Art, and has been working, living and traveling throughout the county in a
nomadic format. At the present he is exploring ones ability to subsist within our contemporary environment, while furthering his inquirers into emergent
and experimental photographic processes, perspectives, and applications. His studio is located on Peaks Island off the coast of Maine.
