Jack Spencer – Native Soil

 

Jack Spencer’s haunting color photographs.

From the Jackson Fine Art Gallery website:

In Jack Spencer’s first body of work, “Native Soil”, he traveled across the southern U.S. Since then he has traveled the country and into Mexico, always allowing life to lead him to his next series. Working in St. Augustine, Florida, a pastel palette makes his new photographs feel similar to watercolor paintings. Jack Spencer was born in Mississippi and currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee. Jack is a self-taught photographer who attended Louisiana Tech University. His work is in many collections including: The Houston Museum of Fine Art, Berkley Museum of Art, and Sir Elton John’s Photography Collection and he is represented by leading contemporary photography galleries throughout the United States. LSU Press published his book, “Native Soil”, in 1999.
