Judson Womack (he/him) is a Chicago-based photographer exploring themes of toxic traditionalism, ritual, and inherited culture in America’s privileged spaces, including his own. His bodies of work join meditative documentary-style images and archival material to examine the cyclical nature with which place and memory form identity, with which identity then forms place and memory, and so on and so forth.

A native of Jackson, Mississippi, he received his BFA in Art (Studio) from Davidson College in 2018 and is expected to receive his MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago in 2025.
