Bailey Russel grew up in New Jersey and attended Princeton University for a BA in Art History. After spending a year working in Malaysia, he attended a joint NYU / International Center for Photography MA program in photography. He worked for a number of years in New York City for an array of artists and museums (spending a year at the Met), before moving to Seattle for two years. He moved to Laramie in the Fall of 2011.
Bailey has shown at private galleries in New York and extensively in Seattle, particularly at the Seattle Art Museums Gallery. His work mostly features large cameras, either constructed of plywood or rooms that have been darkened, in which he exposes huge sheets of color negative photo paper for unique color images.
