Clay Swatzell

Clay Swatzell is a photographic artist who began his journey into photography somewhat accidentally when he was gifted a camera in the early 1980s.  Clay doesn’t always allow the reality of a photograph to stand in the way of conveying his message or emotion when photographing subjects.  Clay used a variety of techniques and processes to bring his art to visualization.  ​​​​​​​
His works are characterized by using everyday objects in an atmosphere of middle-class mentality in which recognition plays an important role. Clay Swatzell currently lives and works in Overland Park KS.
