Nate Larson is a Baltimore-based contemporary photographer working with big data, historical research, and community partnerships to create expanded documentary projects. My projects harmonize the insights of abstract datasets with the personal storytelling that comes from one-on-one relationships. Please browse my body of work through the chronological menu to the left or through my main projects below.


Geolocation (2009 - )

For the last ten years, I have collaborated extensively with artist Marni Shindelman. Our Geolocation project traces Twitter posts to the point of origin and makes a photograph to mark the location in the real world. Our work probes the expectations of privacy surrounding social networks.

Bmore Doc Project (2015 - )

Following the death of Freddie Gray and the Baltimore Uprising, I made portraits at the protests in the streets of Baltimore. Concerned about representing only that moment of crisis, I am now building long-term relationships with community groups and continuing to document my city.

Centroid Towns (2014 - )

A social documentary project creating a portrait of the towns tagged as the mean center of population during the history of the United States Census. The coordinate has currently touched 26 cities across eight states, spanning Maryland to Missouri.
