The Texan photographer Brandon Thibodeaux has created a body of work that explores the American South in the documentary tradition. Using black-and-white film and a Mamiya C330, he captures poetic pared-down compositions that blend fine art with elements of reportage in the square frame of medium-format photography. “In a way I think they feel like we’re making something special together, using this unique-looking device,” he has said of working with the twin-lens camera. The resulting photographs present both a timeless and a completely of-the-moment portrait of a place and its inhabitants. Thibodeaux also uses 35 mm and digital cameras, and incorporates elements from his art practice in his career as an editorial and corporate photographer.
