” Over the last 15 years, I have learned my trade and developed my vision without traditional training. Photography has been both passion and paycheck. I learned ?the technical arts of film, chemistry, and printing through the good fortune of ?working among photographers, artists, and intellectuals. My travels, both ?domestic and abroad, have given me knowledge of the world and the passion to document it. Recently, my work has expanded to include not only the final photograph, but the interactions with my subjects.”

Photographer Coke Wisdom O’Neal’s “Box” photos pay homage to life’s diversity. A cast of diverse characters is framed by a huge wooden box and performs their everyday behaviors—from fencing fencers to tangoing dancers. The series spin on the old adage that “home is where the heart is.”
