North Georgia photographer Keith May began his career in the art department of a rural newspaper but soon left for California to Art Direct National magazines. Years of leaning over a light-table editing other photographers’ work eventually led to a decision to leave the confines of an office to become a photojournalist himself. Assignments typically led to backroads and back alleys looking for eccentric outsiders and the world they inhabit. Exploring the Pacific Coast and Southwest–on two wheels and four–searching for the America romanticized by Steinbeck, Faulkner and Kerouac.
For 2013, he's exploring the Southeast and searching for more assignments that take him off the beaten path.
