West Tennessee Landscapes

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.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
