The Art of the Personal Project is a crucial element to let potential buyers see how you think creatively on your own. I am drawn to personal projects that have an interesting vision or that show something I have never seen before. In this thread, I’ll include a link to each personal project with the artist statement so you can see more of the project. Please note: This thread is not affiliated with any company; I’m just featuring projects that I find. Please DO NOT send me your work. I do not take submissions.
Today’s featured artist: Matt Odom
This work explores the love for Bar B Que in the south. It is often said here down in the south that Along with football, religion, and politics, BBQ is one of the four topics that Southerners will never agree upon”. My hope is that for this photo essay, the viewer will get a small sample of how each BBQ establishment takes on their own personality and take on providing the southern delicacy of “Bar B Que”.
