Casey Dunn is a photographer living in Austin, Texas.
A native Texan, he spent his childhood playing baseball, basketball, tennis, table tennis, kickball, prison ball and sometimes, Zelda or Contra if it was raining.
He tried on many occasions to replace one of those sports with something “cooler,” like surfing or skateboarding, but the gods of balance never obliged.
After earning his bachelor's degree at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, and a stint as a photo assistant in NYC, he returned to Austin and is carrying out his dream as a photographer.
Since then, he has built relationships with leading designers and creatives in the region,recently spending his spare time traveling as he works on his book project, Marfa Modern.
If the work-life balance allows, he can be found participating in a number of non-extreme sports, like running, swimming, hiking, and swimming hole hunting. Below, we asked Casey a few questions to learn more about the man behind the lens.
