Scott Sheffield

Scott Sheffield (b. 1994) is a photographer currently based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and a recent graduate of the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. With Midwestern roots (born and raised in Chicago, Illinois), travel was a critical part of Scott’s childhood and continues to play a large role in his current practice. Scott’s recent work explores place and culture through looking at the built landscape as evidence of human presence and action.

Frontiers

Frontiers examines the tourist culture of present-day America through a number of small towns situated at the entrances of its National Parks. Originally developed out of necessity for food and lodging, these towns have transformed into family vacation destinations, appropriating American and regional history for their own commercial benefit with intentions often removed from those of the National Park Service.

Small Talk is a photography collective comprised of seven women: Audra Osborne, Briana Cerezo, Jennifer Timmer Trail, Kelli Pennington, Kristina Hruska, Leslie Hickey, and Marico Fayre. As a group, we explore the nature of what it means to be a visual storyteller, pool resources, provide support and critique, and facilitate community events and discussions. We engage in the best kind of "small talk," that which binds us together both as a collective and within a larger community of women and minority artists, fostering stronger work and collaboration. Our first book, We're Always Touching by Underground Wires, was published in April 2018.
