About Dennis Neal Vaughn
Dennis Neal Vaughn earned an MA in photography from Illinois State University. Raised on a Central Illinois farm, Vaughn lived and worked in Chicago before making San Francisco his home. His work centers around having "A Conversation About Seeing."
Disabled, HIV+, and a cancer survivor, I grew up on a remote rural farm in Central Illinois. Since then I have lived in Chicago and now call San Francisco my home. I find myself going back and forth between these two worlds. One of nature and landscape and sky and the other of the urban environment. I was fortunate as a kid, basically an only child, in that I had a tree house, and there was a timber with a creek and two ponds where I would spend my summers and the seasons exploring, getting lost in the wonder that is nature. I am blessed to have access to both worlds where I can be a kid again when I need and return back into civilization renewed."
