Headshot of Terry A. Ratzlaff

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 has had the pleasure of working with publications such as; 
The New York Times, Wall Street Journal,  Vanity Fair, Bloomberg Businessweek, FT Weekend, Der Spiegel, Newsweek, ESPN, The Financial Times, Inc. Magazine, HUCK, VICE and 5280 Magazine, among others.
