Artist Fellowship

Meet an Artist Fellow: Photographer, Jonathan Samuel

With a strong affinity for travel and a natural talent behind the lens, Jonathan Samuel aims to take photos that transcend “language barriers, cultural differences, moral constructs, and socio-economic class.”

As a Getaway Artist Fellow, he spent a few nights at our Outpost outside of Atlanta, Getaway Chattahoochee, snapping candid shots of his wife and two sons. As evidenced through his photo essay, he found a little slice of serenity with the controlled chaos.

“Sometimes we forget how important it is to unplug from our everyday lives. Life in itself can be so demanding, and we owe it to ourselves to take a step back and just be present in the moment. No cell phones, no emails, no thinking about next week, or next month even. Just a camp fire and a tiny house in the mountains with those you love the most. A quick way to recharge and get back to the grind.”

“I find it extremely important to celebrate those moments in time that give us laughter, love, and the wisdom to keep pressing toward our purpose in life.”
