Jordan Benton is a Kentucky-born photographer who works to understand a relationship to place through investigating the connections between an environment and the people interacting there. Much of his work focuses on the landscape of the American South in the places where he grew up. His approach to photography is situated between an on-the-road style of American documentary, which embraces narratives of the everyday, and observational photo story telling that unobtrusively captures life’s spontaneity.
