Louis ' Ziggy ' Tucker

J. Louis Tucker – better known as ‘ Ziggy ‘ – at initial glance uses digital photography to observe and document moments in time as they relate to American culture and its subcultures. On a deeper level, the artist explores the concepts of rhythm and movement as they relate to people. During 2013 Ziggy was recognized in the Memphis Flyer’s “20<30” article as one of 20 young Memphians under the age of 30 that are shaping the city’s future. Other accomplishments include photographing the President of the United States, having photographs displayed as part of the Brooks Museum 2013 group exhibition #memphisshared, and being commissioned to design a photography mural in the Whitehaven area of Memphis, Tennessee early 2014.
