Dowell’s photographs have been added to the collections of the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the Fogg Museum of Harvard University, the Museum of the Rhode Island School of Design, and the Lehigh University Museum.

Dowell writes about his current imagery of American cities at night, “There is an excitement of the city that is often overlooked. These structures of our culture soar to the sky and hold intimate details of our lives. They embody our energies with moments of magic. I want to capture all aspects of time – the past, the present and the hopes for the future.”
