Cade Overton: Never Going Home
I’ve been thinking a lot about how much of a gift it is to be able to use our photographs as another way of expressing ourselves. Today’s post on the work of Cade Overton, reminds me of how powerful images are, how they tell our stories, express our emotions, and act as visual journals that document our lives. Cade’s series, Never Going Home, was captured on the road at an age where he was defining who he was and where he was going an a young man, freshly launched into the real world. The series reflects a complex and internal period best expressed through the lens.
Cade was raised in coastal Maine until he moved to central Massachusetts to study photography at Clark University before relocating to Austin, Texas where he was based for two years. During that time he traveled extensively for a living, and in 2012 I moved back to Worcester, Massachusetts. Travel and exploration are both major elements in his work; he photographs both small details and larger landscapes in order to get in touch with the physical nature of a place. Wanderlust and photography go hand in hand and are often the main focus of his days. All of his images are made with film cameras and natural light.
