One of the pleasures of producing the 4th of July post on Lenscratch was getting to know some of the readers and contributors to the exhibition. Walker Pickering was one of those pleasures, and it turns out we have a friend in common in Austin, the talented Polly Chandler. Walker studied photography at Texas State University and received his MFA in Atlanta, Georgia at the Savannah College of Art & Design. He now teaches photography at The Art Institute of Austin as an adjunct professor.
Walker’s new series, Nearly West, reflects a visual resonance through color, design, and pacing. There is a stillness, yet a symphony in his work, where the sounds of water, crickets, wind, and nothingness wash away brilliant colors, leaving the traces of his visual memories. Also featured is his series, Abundant Living. And don’t miss his terrific black and white work on his site.
