Rachel Wolf is a professional photographer who specializes in camera-less photography, alternative / antique processes, and creates immersive environments through light-based installations. Many of her projects are experiments in which the external world becomes a way of considering inner reality and visual perception.
One of her principal methods of working involves directly exposing photographic paper to light and chemicals, making these primary photographic elements, that are often invisible, become tangible. These essential matters become the tools, subjects and direct chemical process that create the image. This is camera-less photography as alchemical practice.
Rachel is an educator and speaker in the field of photography. She is a founding member of FO(u)RT Collective, a multi-disciplinary arts collective that creates/ curates exhibitions and events. She also co-founded deiWolf Studio, a Tintype and Ambrotype portrait studio.
Rachel exhibits her work nationally, and is collected in private and public collections. Originally from Anchorage, Alaska, Rachel earned her BA from Hampshire College and her MFA from Pacific Northwest College of Art. Rachel lives in Portland, OR.
