Tuck Fauntleroy’s artistic practice focuses on the medium of water and its expansive relationships. Utilizing rivers as the subject matter, strong visual lines are accentuated by the snow-covered earth from an aerial perspective. Fauntleroy visually displaces the viewer, pushing the boundaries of realism and abstraction through compositions of positive and negative space. His photographic approach emphasizes simplicity and stability. Fauntleroy spent the last decade taking flight over the American West to capture rivers at a critical moment in the spring. Works in this series are connected by the intentionality of photographing landscapes devoid of human interruption. Noting the transitional progressions in these remote locations, Fauntleroy expresses a deeply human desire to capture and chase the ephemerality of seasons and time.
Combined with his personal photographic practice, Fauntleroy has developed a professional foundation as a photographer in the fields of architecture and interior design over the past 20 years. Published in recognized outlets such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, Dwell, Newsweek, Powder Magazine, Backcountry, Mountain Living, Range, and Town & Country, Fauntleroy’s successful commercial and interior work is committed to utilizing the aesthetics of the natural world through a contemporary study of landscapes. Tuck Fauntleroy, born in Easton, Maryland, lives and works in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
