Matthew Fielding Terrell
Matthew Terrell writes, photographs, and creates videos in the fine city of Atlanta. Terrell's work can be found regularly on VICE, Huffington Post, ArtsATL, Nerve, and Burnaway Magazine where he covers subjects such as the queer art in the South, media culture, and gay mens' health issues. He is a co-founding member of Legendary Children, Atlanta's premier queer art collective. Terrell received an Idea Capital Grant in 2014 for his project "Sweet Tea: The Story of the Queer South;" Terrell is writing and photographing drag performers changing Atlanta's queer community. He has been an artist in residence at Djerassi, Atlantic Center for the Arts, Serenbe, and The Studios of Key West. In 2014, Terrell found a forgotten fragment of a Keith Haring mural at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta—it was his most proud achievement. Terrell received his BFA and MFA in writing from Savannah College of Art and Design; he also has an MA in communications from Georgia State University. Terrell currently works as the communications director for Dad's Garage Theatre, where he helps to publicize a bunch of knucklehead improvisational actors.
