Kollin O’Dannel is a Seattle-based colorist and photographer. At a young age he was diagnosed with juvenile retinoschisis, a rare form of visual macular degeneration. He initially experimented with portrait and landscape photography as a means to capture the full scope of detail in the world around him and now offers a full range of skills.
“Photography helps me see the world by freezing detail that I can revisit. I am fascinated by fleeting moments that people may normally miss, seemingly everyday activities that are also magical. I want to show the world how beautiful it is. At first my camera was a tool to see the world, but now it is much more than that.”
Feel free to contact me with any questions on my story or retinoschisis.
