Jason Vaughn (b.1979) was born and raised in Northern California and currently lives in Madison, Wisconsin. He is a fine art documentary photographer who focuses on Middle America, showcasing everyday people and scenes in a way that is suggestive of melancholy and permanence. Last year, while working on a series entitled Hibernation, he was diagnosed with leukemia at age 32. After a year-long hiatus, he is now continuing the series, contrasting the seasonal rituals of men with their desire to control their environment. His other major project, hide, uses Wisconsin hunting stands as a reflection on legacies and family. hide will be on display in the 2013 Wisconsin Triennial at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. Jason’s work is currently available through Rose Gallery.
