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. Today he is actively pursuing a career in documentary photography with a twist; he approaches the work with a fine art perspective. His current project is titled Bypassed: The Lincoln Highway Across Wyoming. His previous projects include Historically Insignificant: The Story of the Laramie Midwest Refinery and Make No Roads.
