Episode 66: Jody Fausett is an Atlanta-based photographer whose work primarily features his family in their homes, which he transforms into dark, surreal settings. Fausett grew up in North Georgia, went to school in Atlanta, and spent many years living in New York and shooting commercial and fashion photography. Throughout it all, Fausett has been continually drawn back to his family as his primary subjects.
