About & Contact


Cody is a photographer and a filmmaker who lives and works in Los Angeles and Santa Fe. His work offers intimate glimpses into the lives, cultures and music of the passionate communities of America. 

After graduating from CalArts Cody has assisted artists: David Bunn, Zoe Crosher, Danny Lyon & Kim Weston; Cody also began volunteering photography and video services for pediatric hospice, for MediCal patients, in the central coast of California. 

The beginning of Cody's exploration of American music began with his discovery of Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music. For Cody, Smith’s Anthology became both a cultural gold mine and a practical one. He co-produced Re-Envisioning Americaa multi-media homage to the Anthology with colleagues at CalArts. These amazing productions were widely hailed as among the most significant tributes to American music that the CalArts community had ever seen or heard. This led him to new interests in the moving image, the archive and the happening, while expanding his long time investment with documentary photography and text.
