Hide / Jason Vaughn

"Hide is a project that began as a commentary on Wisconsin's hunting tradition, using deer stands as a metaphor for the changing values of the sport. When my sudden cancer diagnosis interrupted the project, 'hide' took on a much deeper, more personal meaning."

Jason Vaughn is a fine art documentary photographer who focusses on Middle America. While driving through Wisconsin - the state that has become his home - Jason continually noticed the deer stands throughout the landscape and became intrigued by their place in local lives.

Removed from the context of a gory sport, he discovered that, to the owners, the deer hides were a metaphor for legacy and a means to provide for a hungry family. As the father of a three-month old new born, these themes resonated deeply with Jason.

After being diagnosed with leukaemia at the age of 32, Jason's perspective on the hides' symbolisation of permanence and impermanence was solidified. His series is a poignant reflection on legacy and family, tinged with a melancholy and stark realism that can only come from knowing what it feels like to fear losing both too soon.
