Walker Pickering – Nearly West

Born in Odessa, Texas in 1980, Walker Pickering’s early youth was spent believing he could become either an astronaut or a dinosaur. Given that he now shoots primarily with a Hasselblad (see: NASA), it would seem an interest in space won out tangentially over the dream of becoming an extinct reptile. This fascination with exploration largely informs his work to this day, and much of it is based on the concept of travel. Though the locations are often far from one another, they are not always particularly exotic—he often focuses on mundane details that are left unobserved by most folks. In fact, travel is often one of the best ways to get his creative juices flowing. Taken from Feature Shoot.
