A Photographic Journey with Lynsey Weatherspoon

A Photographic Journey with Lynsey Weatherspoon

“Suddenly this camera, this thing, allowed me to move around the world in a certain kind of way, with a certain kind of purpose.” Carrie Mae Weems

Lynsey Weatherspoon’s first photography teacher was her late mother, Rhonda, and like her mentor-in-her-head Carrie Mae Weems, that first camera – a gift – delivered purpose. Lynsey’s career includes editorial and commercial work that has been inspired and powered by her first teacher’s love and lessons. On Tuesday evening, February 28th, she will bring her own brand of inspiration when she presents her work and stories to the Moody College of Communication at the U. of Texas, Austin. Her presentation is part of an educational series presented by Canon and its renowned Explorers of Light program, of which Lynsey Weatherspoon is a member.

The #blackqueergirl is an award-winning photographer, portraitist and director based in Atlanta and Birmingham. Using photography and filmmaking as tools to tell stories, Weatherspoon’s work has been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, NPR, Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and TIME, among others.
