Artist: Clay Maxwell Jordan

Project: Nothing’s Coming Soon

Description: Clay Maxwell Jordan’s photographs portray his appreciation for the Buddhist principles of suffering and enlightenment, and the belief that these ideals can manifest simultaneously in his art. In a sequence of quiet stills and unconventional portraits, Jordan’s subjects balance a wide spectrum of emotion and light. Viewed successively, his project, Nothing’s Coming Soon, strives to “counterbalance images of death, mortality, and decay with those of grace and unmitigated beauty.”
