A COUNTRY EYE

WALKER ESNER from The Wassaic Lantern

WALKER ESNER is a photographer from Dover Plains, NY. Many of his shots express a composed brutality, naked and raw, in the strangeness of everyday. When he’s not behind the bar or making pizzas at the Lantern, he’s out in it with a curious eye, capturing the emotion in the little moments. He’s also a staff photographer for the Wassaic Project studio and art residency. These are but a drop in the bucket of the artist portraits he’s taken for them.
