Dan Dill is a Professor of Chemistry at Boston University, specializing in quantum mechanics.

He has been making images since 1966 and processing black and white images since graduate study (albeit in chemical physics not photography) at The University of Chicago, thanks to a fellow graduate student with access to the darkroom in the Department of Anatomy.

In the mid 1970s, all of his camera equipment was stolen, and the low salary and high time demands of being an assistant professor meant further photography, beyond the occasional snap shot, began a lengthy hiatus.

It was not until 2004, in preparation for a visit with friends in Switzerland, that he reentered serious photography, beginning with a Canon 10D. Since, his tools have evolved through a Canon 40D, and most recently to a Canon 5D3.
