Bring Your Canary: Jason Baxley

Mr. Baxley's Mustache

Until recently, if you knew Jason Baxley, it was probably for his insanely long beard, which has recently been hacked down to nothing.   But what you should know him for is his photography.

You can find him at the Charleston Farmers Market every Saturday from March – December, selling his photos of Charleston shot from all sorts of angles, tilt-shift perspectives and panoramic scenes.  But tonight you can find him at Buzzworthy 2, a mobile gallery and project of Stephanie Burt and The Beehive PR, taking place at The Cocktail Club, 479 King Street, from 7 – 10 pm.

Check out what Baxley had to say to the Canary:

When did you first pick up a [paintbrush/camera/pencil/charcoal/etc]?

I was 6 years old and my Aunt gave me one of those learn to draw books and I think I drew every single turtle and blue jay in that whole book.

What was your favorite childhood toy?

My J.I. Joe Hovercraft with exploding depth charges! Lotsa fun in the tub.

What do you love about your medium?
I think everyone sees the world a little differently. Photography gives me a chance to show you my perspective.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you run off to?

I’m exactly where I want to be. Wouldn’t mind an extended vacation in the Alps though.

Finish the sentence: When I run away to join the circus, I will…fall in love with the bearded lady.
