NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Clay Maxwell Jordan in Chelsea International Photography Competition . The exhibition opens January 27, 2018 and runs through February 7, 2018 with an opening reception on Thursday, February 1 from 6-8 pm.
Clay Maxwell Jordan’s intuitive photographs hint at the existential mysteries of lived experiences. Mortality, nostalgia, and regret are recurring themes in his works that offer a unique point of view on life in the American South.
Based in Athens, Georgia, Jordan frequently documents melancholic signs of the passing of time. His genre scenes and portraits capture the brevity of life, the fading of appearances, and the enduring landscape, the complexities of which are embraced in deceivingly straightforward compositions.
