Chuck Hemard is a lifelong resident of the American south. His recent photographs, made mostly with large format film cameras, explore the complexities of contemporary landscape.
In 2018, Hemard published a monograph with Daylight Books that explores remnants of old-growth longleaf pinelands across the Deep South. The work has been featured on Smithsonian Magazine (online), Hyperallergic, and Garden and Gun Magazine (online). In 2014, he was awarded an Artist Fellowship from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and has work included in public collections across the southeast United States, including the Columbus Museum of Art in Columbus GA and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. Recent solo exhibitions include Leland Gallery at Georgia College in Milledgeville, GA and the Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona Beach, FL.
Hemard is an Associate Professor at Auburn University in the Department of Art and Art History.
