Artist Statement: This photograph was taken in the early morning hours of Christmas Eve just off HWY 61 outside of Mound Bayou, Mississippi. Birds like this are a pretty common sight in the Delta after the fall harvest.  Somehow I never grow tired of watching their graceful dance as they forage for fallen seed.  Just a few months prior the wheat stalks would have swayed to their own rhythm.  Whirling about in a northernly wind that was blowing in the winter.  But these little birds in all their hunger remind me of the song that continues on, long after the last stalk is withered and gone.

Brandon’s photo career began at a small daily newspaper down in southeast Texas while studying photography at Lamar University. He now works as a freelance photographer in Dallas.  His work is published in American Photo, Forbes, the FT Weekend Magazine, MSNBC.com, Real Simple, Time.com, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal, among others. When he’s not doing that he’s likely found running the back roads of the South with a twin lens over his shoulder. He is a member of the photography collective MJR, based in New York City. In 2009 he became a member of the Getty Reportage Emerging Talent. In 2012, his work in the Mississippi Delta received CENTER’s Review Santa Fe Prize, was a US Winner in the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward 2012, and The Oxford American listed him in the 100 Under 100, New Superstars of Southern Art 2012.  In 2013 the work was awarded 2nd place in CENTER’s Gallerist’s Choice Award by juror, Lauren Panzo, Director at Pace/McGill Gallery in New York.
