ABOUT - Stacey Evans Photography


Stacey grew up in Waynesboro, Virginia; a small town made diverse by its variety and combination of different landscapes – rural, urban, industrial and suburban. Over the years, she has worked on translating her formative visual experiences and demonstrating the role landscapes play within the culture. What this looks like changes from region to region. She is interested in how people occupy, shape, and transform the land for use; how our experiences and feelings change over time and what we can read into the collective artifacts left behind.

Her photographic career began in middle school as a yearbook photographer. She studied photography at VCU and received a BFA in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. She works as an artist, educator, and commercial photographer. She holds adjunct faculty positions at Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and formerly at Piedmont Virginia Community College. Her work is in public and private collections. She resides in Charlottesville, Virginia with her husband and fellow artist John Grant.
