Native Son by Joe Leavenworth

Words

Joe Leavenworth is an artist living and working in New York City. Since 2009 Joe has been traveling back to the American Southeast, spending time getting to know his birthplace in Georgia. Joe was adopted at birth in Decatur, GA and raised in Connecticut. His compulsion to explore the Southeast stems from his ambiguous biological connection to the region. The photographs accumulated on these road trips form his project titled ‘Native Son’, a collection reflecting his constant search for the hidden in the familiar.
