Fall Line Press announces the release of the first monograph by photographer Clay Maxwell Jordan, entitled “Nothing’s Coming Soon”. The images were primarily made in the American South and were inspired by the Buddhist belief that “life is suffering”. The themes of death, mortality, and decay are counterbalanced with images of grace and unmitigated beauty. What emerges is a poetic, existential meditation on the human condition. The hardbound book consists of 59 color plates and includes an essay by photography critic and chair of Stanford University Department of Art, Alexander Nemerov.
Clay Maxwell Jordan is a photographer and musician who has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally. He is a 2019 MacDowell fellow and currently resides in Athens, Georgia. His first monograph, “Nothing’s Coming Soon,” will be published in February of 2019 by Fall Line Press.
