NOW ONLINE: a piece I wrote for BurnAway on Joe Leavenworth, Chantal Akerman, and outsiders in the American South.
Over the past five years, New York-based photographer Joe Leavenworth has documented his intermittent travels throughout Georgia and the American South, and Native Son—published by the Brooklyn-based VUU this past January—compiles a selection of these photographs. Rich and colorful, Leavenworth’s images, taken between 2009 and 2012, are steeped in the dusty light of Southern summers. Like William Eggleston—whose influence is supremely evident in this collection—Leavenworth highlights the textures, colors, and objects of everyday life, using his camera to reexamine the ordinary.

Just published: an interview with photographer Conan Thai for Tabula Rasa Magazine!
Conan Thai’s biography claims he always chooses “D. All of the above.” It’s unsurprising that his photography seems to best described in a similar manner: his fashion editorials often hint at the sinister and psychological, while his use of physical space finds poetry in the mundane and abandoned. Here HEJ Curatorial co-founder, Charlie Tatum, talks with Conan on everything from the meaning of objects and utilitarianism to Tumblr.
