Raymond MEEKS once had a career as a commercial photographer, travelling all over the U.S. In 2016 he received a Siskind Fellowship Grant from the Aaron Siskind Foundation and a 2020 Guggenheim Fellowship. Along with Mark STEINMETZ, Susan LIPPER, Gregory HALPERN, Deborah LUSTER, Ron JUDE and Doug RICKARD, he counts to 'an interesting new generation of US photographers – post-New Topographical, looking at America's heartland with a collective fresh eye informed by both the country's photographic heritage and a strong desire to tell American stories at a time when the country seems unsure of itself' (Parr & Badger, 2014). He is co-founder of Orchard Journal, in which he collaborates with others and has published a number of books.
