As a photographer, writer, and senior editor at Southern Living magazine for 27 years, Louis Joyner covered architecture and interior design across the South. In addition, he photographed a wide variety of travel and feature articles. His photographs also appear in several Oxmoor House books, including Southern Places, At Home with Southern Living, and Decorating with Southern Living, which he edited.

Louis became interested in photography while studying architecture at the University of Arkansas. After graduation in 1969, he worked as a staff photographer for the Memphis Commercial Appeal and in college public relations before joining the staff of Southern Living in 1973.

Since leaving Southern Living magazine in 2000, Louis has concentrated on large format architectural photography. He is currently working on a black and white series of details of historical buildings in the southeast.

His photography has been exhibited in galleries in Memphis, Little Rock, Winston-Salem, Birmingham, Mt. Pleasant, Charleston, Richmond, Lexington, and Seaside, Florida. Louis has received a bronze medal in the Nikon International competition, a purchase award at the Arkansas Arts Center regional exhibition, and first place at the 2004 Piccolo Spoletto Festival Juried Art Exhibition. His prints are in a number of private collections.

Artist's Statement:
Paint peels and flakes, wood rots, iron rusts, stucco and stone weather away. Slowly, over decades, manmade objects are transformed by nature. Material Changes explores the effects of time and weather on the works of man. This photographic series focuses on small-scale decay as a metaphor for the larger erosion of our civilization.
