Lot Essay

Arizona-born and Houston based, photographer and filmmaker Cary Fagan has already racked up substantial industry credits; contributing visuals for Solange’s “When I Get Home” project as well as shooting the cover of A$AP Rocky’s 2018 album “Testing” – the latter which landed on Billboard’s top 20 album covers of the year.

Despite already receiving major accolades from the industry, the visual artist reveals his roots are much more humble. He credits his dad as the reason he first picked up a camera. Describing his work as “timeless”, Cary explains that “it holds memories” and that he hopes people “will gain insight to what they are going through and how they relate” when they look at it.

Having just recently participated in a group exhibition in his hometown, titled “there is enough for everyone”, shooting a campaign for shoewear brand Footaction, and landing a place on the coveted 2019’s “Dazed 100” list, Cary is actively looking into “finding balance”, and no doubt his next – soon to come – major commission.

On a plane to Florence Italy in an aisle seat. There was a man in a military uniform sitting next to me. He was probably headed to his next assignment. He seemed curious about my endeavors and I was catching his peripheral vision. We engaged in a simple and brief conversation. My journey began after I was hired to document a week-long fashion event. He explained to me that he had never seen another black man on the plane destined to Italy just for art. He probably didn’t believe me when I told him. Our conversation gave me perspective.. Why is it odd for a black man to travel to Italy just to create with no agenda?
A black man in the army stunned by the walking impossible; breathing calmly.
