Born in Texas and living much of his childhood in Laurel, Mississippi, Micah Green graduated from Mississippi State University in Starkville, Miss. He began taking photographs while working at The Commercial Dispatch, a small, short-staffed newspaper during the worst years of business for print media in the US. He has since bounced around to local newspapers around the South, while also freelancing for clients like The New York Times, Bloomberg, and Reuters, along with numerous regional publications.
Green had a photo chosen to be a part of the 39th edition of the American Photography Annual. Along with being published in this year's edition, the photo will be exhibited at the selection show in New York City in November. He was also recently chosen to be the first photographer represented by a fine art gallery based in Mississippi. A selection of his work from across the American South will be available through The Caron Gallery beginning May 8th 2023.
Although he spent his youth in the South, his family is from the western US, and says he didn't grow up feeling "Southern". Self-taught through experimentation, Green's daily observations through his camera lens have given him a better understanding of and ties to the region he calls home.
