Greg Stroube

"I work to create rich, compelling photographs, finding beauty and character in ordinary places and things."

Greg Stroube was raised in the rural Midwest and has always been drawn to old, rustic textures, colors richened and mellowed with age, and the designs of nature. He began to explore that world through photography, using many different techniques, some dating back to the 19th century. This decades-long journey has resulted in rich, deeply layered prints, primarily still lifes and landscapes.

Each of Stroube's photographs is created in the darkroom using a 19th-century process called platinotype. Each print is hand coated with an emulsion that contains platinum and palladium. The paper is then sandwiched with a large film negative and exposed. This process yields a uniquely rich and seductive tonal range that is matched by few other techniques. It is also extremely archival.

Greg Stroube graduated from the Department of Cinema and Photography at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. He apprenticed with many of the top photographers in Chicago before opening a studio in St. Louis and becoming an internationally recognized photographer working with Fortune 500 corporations and advertising agencies. Continuing to produce fine art photography remains his passion.
