Chad DowlingUpon graduating from the Corcoran School of Art in 1993, Chad Dowling, who photographed Frannie Léautier in “Woman of the World,” left behind a life as a starving artist for a life as a starving commercial photographer. His work takes him from the outhouse to the White House, and everywhere in between. In addition to shooting for Prism, his images have appeared in numerous periodicals such as Travel & Leisure, the New York Times Magazine and Cigar Aficionado. Chad Dowling is based in Washington, D.C.
