Jamie Baldridge was born to two hominids in 1975 in a very small town in the deep south. Much of his childhood was spent in tedium. After spending years studying Religion and Creative Writing at Louisiana State University, Jamie somehow got a BFA in Photography. After which he went on to work a string of odd, very odd, photographic gigs before receiving his MFA in Photography from the same fine institution. Baldridge’s work has been exhibited widely in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, France, India, and the United Arab Emirates as well as across the United States. He is currently a professor of photography at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. His work and writings can be found in many collections such as the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, McNeese University’s Abercrombie Gallery, the Lulu and Paul Hilliard Museum, the Rare Books collections of the Library of Congress, Cornell, and RIT as well as numerous private collections. His first book, “The Everywhere Chronicles” was published by 21st Editions in 2008 and went on to receive the Lucie Award.
