Sean Blocklin is a photographer and lab manager, who moved from Jersey City to sunny California to spend more time in a darkroom. He studied at Pratt, beginning with a focus on film and video, before shifting to photography, as he found he preferred to tell a story in a single frame. While in college, he began working for Chuck Kelton (master printer, Kelton Labs), whom he assisted for 6 years, having the privilege to print for Lou Stettner, Mary Ellen Mark, Danny Lyon, and many more. He also assisted the artist Hale Gurland, doing small to large format photography and sculpture. Now working at Santa Monica College as the Studio & Lab Manager, Sean enjoys combining his passions for photography and mentoring to guide burgeoning artists.
