About the Artist
Todd R. Forsgren uses photography to examine themes of ecology, climate change, perceptions of landscape, and social justice while striving to strike a balance between art history and natural history. To do so, he employs a range of approaches, from documentary strategies to experimental techniques.
Todd lives in Billings, Montana where he teaches Rocky Mountain College and serves as the director of the school's Ryniker-Morrison Gallery. Community is important to Todd; he works closely and collaboratively with artists, scholars, and curators as part of Spectacle Box, AgX, Atlantika Collective, f/4.5 Collective and MIXX.
Todd studied biology and visual arts at Bowdoin College and received an MFA in photography from J.E. Purkyne University. He was an artist-in-residence at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, the Artist's Enclave at I-Park, and Maryland Hall for Creative Arts as well as a Fulbright Fellow in Mongolia.
His photographs have been featured in National Geographic, Slate, Wired, The Guardian, Nature, New Scientist, TIME's Lightbox, and Cosmopolitan.
