Jason Vaughn is a fine art documentary photographer based in Wisconsin. His first major series, hide, is a typological study using Wisconsin hunting stands as a reflection on legacies and family. In 2011, while working on hide, he was diagnosed with leukemia at age 32. After a yearlong hiatus, chemotherapy, and recovery, he completed the series in 2014. It has been met with great acclaim and featured in the New York Times, Slate Magazine, and Artforum, among others. Photographs from hide were included in the State of the Art exhibition at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. For this show, curators visited over 1,000 studios in a search for "the most compelling American art being created today." hide was published by Trema Förlag with a special edition by Paul Schiek released through TBW Books. More recently, he has been called “one of the more exciting photographers…coming out of the American Midwest” by PhotoEye, invited to China as a guest artist for the International Yixian Festival, and has a second book coming out through TBW Books in 2018.
