According to his bio, Walker Pickering is a Texan from Texas. He has been a photographer at the Texas House of Representatives and darkroom printer for screenwriter & photographer Bill Wittliff. He currently teaches photography at The Art Institute of Austin as a part-time faculty member and is available for editorial assignments and commissions. So, there.
I love these images from his recent series Nearly West, five prints from which will be on view at the Houston Center for Photography from March 11-April 24, 2011.
