From the series Near Fluvanna, West Texas
NEAR FLUVANNA, WEST TEXAS (2009)
The photographs in this series document hunting culture in a sparsely populated
area of the Lone Star State. In this rural environment, hunting, taxidermy and
sport shooting are woven into daily life.
Logan Caldbeck was born in Vancouver, British Columbia. Until she was 17, she
lived in a cabin without electricity or running-water. Her upbringing in a purposely
isolated, natural environment fostered her interest in rural living, identity, humannature
relationships, and the intentions of those who seek encounters with the
natural world. In 2007, Logan began documenting hunting paraphernalia in small
Vermont and West Texan towns, including three months spent living in a hunting
outfitter's log cabin. In 2009, Logan completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at
Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. She has exhibited her photography in
Canada and the United States. She lives and works in Marfa, Texas.
