The Carlos Gallery in the Nabit Art Building at University of the South is pleased to present Transmission, color photographs by Athens, Ga.-based artist Clay Jordan.

Clay Jordan is a photographer and musician who was born in Augusta, Ga., in 1975. He graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1998 with a degree in Psychology and from the University of Georgia in 2013 with a M.F.A. in Photography. He currently splits his time between Athens, Ga., and New York City. In addition to his photography practice, he plays in the band pacificUV.

Jordan states:
“The direct experience of childhood and the later recollection of one's youth elicit opposing emotions and perceptions. I hope through this series to juxtapose the feelings of wonder, excitement, and innocence of youth, with the adult emotions of regret, nostalgia, and loss.” Jordan’s work is charged with momentary puzzles, and often defies reconciliation between what is seen and what is implied.
