Frontier Fellowship: Tristan Wheelock
September 29 - October 29
Tristian Wheelock was born in Chicago in the early eighties. His dad was a rock n’ roll dj and his mother owned a vintage clothing store. Wheelock spent his formative years sifting through racks of used Levi’s searching for that infamous big E and listening to the crackly sounds of jazz and blues on 78 rpm records.
Wheelock picked up a camera after college and hit the road to start documenting the world around him. He’s kicked up dust in New Delhi, chased rally racers through the Himalayas, Airstreamed his way across America and many other strange adventures.
Currently based in Florida, he spends his free time climbing plastic rocks and slowly dialing in the feng shui of his new home.
“The most exciting thing for me in regards to my upcoming time in Green River is the chance to
engage with locals and learn about the community. I love small towns and I love the landscape
in Utah, especially around Green River. I’m looking forward to making some good work, having
some enriching conversations, and taking some long walks in the desert.”
