Doug Plummer has been taking photographs since the age of 6, learning the craft from his father. He was born in Chambersburg,
PA and moved to the West Coast to finish college (at The Evergreen State College, Olympia, WA). He took a detour through
printmaking and professional birdwatching, but since 1985 he has been a free-lance photographer in Seattle working for editorial,
institutional and advertising clients.
Doug Plummer 's dance photographs represent a 25-year-long project to document the American
contra dance scene. Visit dougplummer.com and follow the contra dance photo project at
