I have often caught myself staring at someone’s face and wanted to go beyond the stare, go beyond the look, to really see. From the lines on a person’s face worn like a warrior who has earned each of them, to the smooth perfect skin of a child whose innocence shines, to each one’s eyes telling a story. This project captures each person of interest in a still frame to be viewed over and over to explore and see deeper with each viewing.
Squire Fox’s first glimpse of a future in photography came from seeing a captivating spread of Peter Beard in the African landscape. In the picture, this internationally famous photographer was inthe mouth of an alligator writing in his journal, a beautiful model nearby.
Born into a creative family, Fox was influenced by his mother, a painter; and his father and grandfathers, all furniture craftsmen. He graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in photography, and continued his studies at the Maine Photographic Workshops, Lacoste and Marseille, France. Fox moved to New York City in 1993 and assisted Bruce Weber, George Holz, Gilles Bensimon, and Mary Ellen Mark. Since then he has pursued his independent career and developed a client base that includes the magazines Vanity Fair, UK Conde Nast Traveller, Travel & Leisure, Domino, Elle, Town & Country, among others as well as W.W. Norton publishers and Lions Gate entertainment company. Fox lives with his wife and children in Charleston and commutes to New York.
