When you think of photo galleries, New York City, San Francisco or Los Angeles probably first come to mind. But if you ask about where are the top leading photographic image makers using historical techniques and alternative processes within the contemporary and traditional fields of photography, you’ll hear about the Tilt Gallery, previously located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Opened in 2005, the intimate gallery was one of the first to specialize in historic formats and alternative processes. Timing was perfect. Tilt filled a gap, and quickly became a focal point for an emerging new photographic community. The gallery quickly built a reputation, first regionally, but soon reaching national and international audiences. A few years later, Tilt expanded its collection to encompass digital photography as well as mixed media artworks. With its vast collection, Tilt has developed different programs for establishing and emerging art collectors to facilitate acquiring work and building an art collection.

Over the years, Tilt has built strong community collaborations to connect artists, schools and educational programs, galleries, museums, and collectors as the gallery is built upon the belief that artistic and curatorial practice plays a vital role in catalyzing cultural dialogue, while shaping our understanding of individual identity and social contexts. As part of this mission, Tilt served on the board of Contemporary Forum at Phoenix Art Museum and partnered with Scottsdale Galleries Association.
