West Tennessee Landscapes

2010, Archival pigment print, Sizes vary

My art focuses on a systematic inquiry into the connection between landscape and identity. I began this investigation in my undergraduate studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. There I studied photography under Baldwin Lee, who studied documentary photography under Walker Evans. I consider myself an art photographer following in the same tradition of Southern documentary photography; but rather than focusing on the people that live in the space, I look at how space and place interact to affect culture and societal constructs of identity.
