Doc Thissen is a Laramie, Wyoming based artist who uses photography to create original artwork that will be on display and for sale at the 6th Biennial Touchstone Laramie Art Exhibition hosted by the Laramie Artists Project.
Doc Thissen began capturing images in the mid-1970s with a circa 1960’s Minolta A5 Rangefinder. After thirty years of being self-taught, Doc earned a degree from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco at the end of 2013.
