We are thrilled to welcome Peyton Fulford to Giant. Peyton's work springs from real life yet feels like it was made in a dream state. Buttery light and creamy colors complement a relaxed intimacy, as she welcomes her subjects to be fully themselves and, in response, they radiate a powerful sense of self. She began her career creating documentary-style photographs, and that practice is still the foundation for genre-spanning imagery that celebrates human connection and thought-provoking narratives. Her clients include Apple, Airbnb, Google, Vogue, Chase, Gucci, The New Yorker, and Ford. 

Now based in Los Angeles, Peyton was born and raised in a small town in Georgia that inspired an appreciation of simple living and a less-is-more attitude, as well as vastly shaped her idea of beauty. Having grown up in a family of ultra-runners, cyclists, and kayakers, she found freedom in the natural landscape, even though as a young queer person she struggled to find belonging. Her portrait series “Tenderness” is a direct response to those experiences, exploring “the notion of intimacy and identity among the LGBTQ+ community in the American South,” she says. Her work has been part of solo and group exhibitions, including “A Long Art: Photography and the American South Since 1845” at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art; Photo London at Somerset House; and the Photo Vogue Festival in Milan. She was a finalist for Magnum Photos’ Inge Morath Award, and was the recipient of a Women Photograph + Nikon Grant and the Firecracker Photographic Grant.
