Native Son Native Son is an evolving collection of photographs made traveling the American Southeast, predominately Georgia. The inspiration for these adventures South comes directly from my own estranged relationship to the South. I was born in Decatur, Georgia 1985, adopted at birth and raised in Woodbury, Connecticut. As I matured, the itch to experience this region I felt connected to, albeit abstractly, intensified, and I was further propelled after reading my biological mother’s nine page handwritten letter left for me at birth.

Clementine works on many long term projects and her work is selected for the Ideastap/Magnum Photos Award 2014. Today we feature her series, Love Me True. Billboard, Memphis Little Girl, Elvis Presley Boulevard Love Me True What moves me is people’s eccentricity. I don’t care if they are young or old, I just like them to feel different and want to be noticed. When you walk down the street, you will always notice a different hair cut, or an unexpected pronounced make up on an old lady. This artificial look could be interpreted as self-confidence but it is often ambiguous and underlies a king of insecurity. In my most recent projects, I have been looking for people who yearn to be someone else. They might be burlesque dancers or Elvis Presley fans; they all have this deep desire of …

Walker Pickering

Walker Pickering (b. 1980) is an artist and photographer based in Austin, Texas. His work is primarily documentary in nature, using photography as a means to get access to people and places that might normally be unavailable. Walker was raised in the oil fields of West Texas and the swamps of far East Texas but spent his summers at family reunions in the Deep South. Walker has since returned to the Southern and Southwestern United States on several road trips to create his series, Nearly West, which we share with you today. Nearly West The first half of my childhood was spent in the West Texas desert oil fields, and the other half among the swamps and bayous of the Southeastern part of the state. Six-hundred miles stood between them. I grew up thinking they not only couldn’t have less in common but that I wasn’t truly from either. My ancestors hail from Alabama, Mississippi, and the like, and I spent summers as a child driving there for family reunions. I always felt like a …

Zoos are the primary site for this relationship, but they often obscure the conflicts inherent in maintaining and displaying captive wild animals. In this series, I photographed the interiors of animal enclosures at 12 different zoos across the U.S and …

After returning home after several living in Vancouver and then New York, I saw the people and places I left behind …
