Born in Salt Lake City, Utah and raised in Los Angeles, Todd Walker was a towering figure in creative photography of the 1960s and 1970s. A talented teacher, he left a position at UCLA to teach alongside Jerry Uelsmann at the University of Florida in 1970.

At UF, Walker and his colleagues, including Uelsmann and Douglas Prince pushed the boundaries of what a photograph could be. In addition to photography, Walker was also keenly interested in photo-printmaking and screenprinting specifically.

Todd Walker's works are in such prominent public collections as the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.; Light Work Collection, Syracuse, New York; Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, Illinois; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Ackland Art Museum, Chapel Hill, North Carolina; and Harvard Art Museums, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
