“These days I like to think my photography exists somewhere between that country living and city ideals. Images with roots and connections but excited about big lights and tall buildings.”
Theron Humphrey is an photographer from coastal North Carolina, “the sort of place with sandy soil you can’t forget”. He’s the man behind my favorite Instagram profile ever: @thiswildidea. He travels a lot – he’s been to all 50 U.S. states and beyond – with a special companion: Maddie the Coonhound, his dog. And his best friend.
Maddie is also the perfect subject for most of his photographs of landscapes and unforgettable moments. Take a look and be inspired!
His photo project, “This wild idea”, has been featured on online publications such as Wired, The Huffington Post, Mashable and CNN, as well as on printed publications – National Geographic, NY Post, People Magazine just to name a few. He has won several prizes for his fantastic work: PDN’s 30 emerging photographers 2014 and National Geographic Traveler of the Year.
