Ashleigh Coleman

Photographer Ashleigh Coleman studied Art History at the University of South Carolina. She focuses her lens on the areas surrounding of her home in Mississippi as well as the old, unknown roads of her travels hoping to "defamiliarize" her eyes and see things in new light. Her work often includes humans filling a role in the landscape around them.
