Colton Rothwell (b.1999) is a photographer and artist based in Missoula, Montana. He is currently attending the University of Montana in pursuit of a BFA in studio arts.

Raised in rural Idaho, his work is heavily influenced by his Western upbringing and the cultural and physical landscapes he called home as a closeted queer youth. He began taking photographs at the age of 14 as an outlet to help him understand the constructed binary world of sexuality and gender.

With experience in both the fields of journalism and the visual arts, Rothwell explores the truth of photography and considers the way history, personal identities, and place affect the way images are understood
