Huger Foote
2015 | archival pigment print | 24x16 | $3000

Memphis born artist Huger Foote never looks for anything specific, he simply allows the forms and colors to lead his frame. You can call it serendipitous, easy-going, effortless, but most of all Foote’s approach is artistic genius you never knew you needed to see. Drawn to the secrets found within unseen angels, hidden corners, and mundane moments, Foote captures the quick and fleeting moments like strangers on the subway, but also those moments that have always been there like the weeds popping out of the curb or that golden hour recurring shadow cast on the bedroom wall. Composition leads the way, and the perfect moment takes the stage.

In the introduction written for his monograph Huger Foote: My Friend From Memphis, father of color photography William Eggleston wrote “Huger’s looking out and finding ways to organize the frame. Things you see every day, could be a street corner, could be anywhere. And he’s organizing those elements in a very intelligent way. It’s something that takes an enormous amount of courage to do.” How ‘bout them apples?

Huger Foote was born in Memphis and received his BFA from Sarah Lawrence College. After traveling extensively and living abroad for several years, he now resides in New York City and upstate New York though he returns to Memphis regularly.
