Investigating how land use and social history influence cultural geography, Micah Cash’s work explores the visual languages of landscape and architecture through the prism of race, class, and gender. Themes of ownership, demarcation, and utilization are explored predominantly through painting and photography. Micah exhibits nationally in both solo and group exhibitions. His work has been featured most recently in The Bitter Southerner, Fraction Magazine, The Atlantic, Ninth Letter, Aint-Bad Magazine, Places Journal, Two Coats of Paint, and Charlotte Magazine. Micah received his MFA from the University of Connecticut and his Bachelor’s degree from the University of South Carolina. His first monograph, Dangerous Waters: A Photo Essay on the Tennessee Valley Authority investigates the contemporary landscapes of the Tennessee ValleyAuthority's (TVA) hydroelectric program and considers the tenuous balance between locations that are designed for both hydroelectric generation and public recreation. Dangerous Waters will be published by University of Tennessee Press in the Fall of 2017. Micah lives and works in Charlotte, North Carolina.
