Micah McCoy is a documentary photographer with a keen eye for the threads tying together the public world. With a background in Sociology, Micah captures artifacts left behind from the social interactions of individuals and communities as well as catching these interactions in progress. Photographing themes of anxiety, duplicity, and social detachment, Micah's photos are a reminder that what we see in this world is the sum of many social interactions. Even the solo portrait is affected. The subject’s appearance and behavior are undoubtedly influenced by society at large and the presence of the photographer. By taking a photo, a slice of this social world is removed for examination.
