D. Randall Blythe

D. Randall Blythe was born in Maryland and grew up in the coastal regions of Tidewater, Virginia and Cape Fear, North Carolina. Accidentally becoming a photographer after he purchased his first camera for its video capabilities, he quickly discovered the work of the great French master, Henri Cartier-Bresson. Cartier-Bresson’s philosophy of capturing “the decisive moment” has shaped Blythe’s approach to photography, as well as inspiring his love affair with Leica cameras. Blythe’s first exhibit, “Show Me What You’re Made Of” had a two-month run at New York City’s Sacred Gallery, and his second, “From Whence We Came” was exhibited at the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands, with part of the exhibit remaining in the gallery’s permanent collection. His current exhibit, “A Longer View,” is running from Sept. 13th through Nov. 11th 2018 at the Leica Gallery Boston. His work has been used as album art for several renowned rock groups, and featured internationally in publications from Australia’s to America’s Rolling Stone. A published author, Blythe penned the best-selling memoir, “Dark Days,” and writes about music and culture for various outlets. When not on tour with his band, lamb of god, or traveling to surf, Blythe lives with his wife in Richmond, Virginia.
