Logan Caldbeck
Marfa, Texas


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.
