Scott Walker’s street photography “conveys stories that you have to study,” says the Murfreesboro Post, and I have to agree with them. Walker’s black & white photography is fantastic. Walker is president WGNS, a talk radio station based in Murfreesboro. “He seeks out the homeless, the poorest among us. Walker’s street photography conveys stories that you have to study. He photographs life, captures addiction, homelessness, pain, happiness and sorrow.”
Why is he drawn to these people? “I’m curious,” he tells the Murfreesboro Post. “I like to ask a lot of questions after I take pictures to find out what makes a person tick, what landed them where they are today.” said Walker, who also said he likes to help others and wants to encourage others to do so as well. “Taking photos of the life that some lead can open the eyes of many who fail to slow down and take in what or who they walk past every day.”
A free exhibit of Walker’s photographs started today (August 12) and runs through Sept. 25 at at Murfreesboro City Hall. The exhibition is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Mondays through Fridays.
Walker’s photos can also be seen on his website SmallTownBigWorld.com.
