Terry A. Ratzlaff is an artist and educator living in Lincoln, Nebraska. His particular obsession with trains and time–and the point in which these phenomena collide – informs his current artistic research on time, vision, and modernity. Working primarily in photography and book art, his work emphasizes the sequence over the singular image to better deconstruct modern perceptions of time, history, technological progress and its adversarial effects on human consciousness. He operates a small imprint, The Basement Window, making small edition artist books and boxes. He received his MFA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Digital Media at Nebraska Wesleyan University.
He has had the pleasure of working with publications such as;
The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Bloomberg Businessweek, FT Weekend, Der Spiegel, Revolver Magazine, Pallet Magazine, Sweet, Inc. Magazine, HUCK, VICE, 5280 Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, ESPN andThe Financial Times among others.
