AARON DURALL

About

Hey there. I'm Aaron DuRall, a portrait and documentary photographer from the southwest Missouri Ozarks. Over the past seven years I’ve been living in Queens, NY, where I’ve spent a lot of my time creating quirky still life and conceptual work for various publications. As a dyed-in-the-wool Midwesterner, I hold a deep affinity for the average and banal often found in the minutia of regular, everyday American life. When I am not styling and shooting client-based still life and providing creative direction, I am  focused on making the work I am most passionate about, documenting my Ozark homeland. Though my portfolio can be confusing for some given the gulf between the two dominant styles of work I create, the goal is always the same, to illustrate truth and authenticity. Whether it’s still life and conceptual work, or straight forward documentation and portraiture, I find the most fulfillment in the act of collaboration. I was recently accepted as a candidate for an MFA in Visual Studies from Missouri State University where I’ve been awarded a full Graduate Assistantship.
