Megan C. Ledbetter’s photographs are inspired by the deeply symbolic vanitas still-life paintings of 17th-century Europe. These paintings drew their reference from the first chapter of the book of Ecclesiastes, which explores the complex relationship between the body and spirit. In her work, Ledbetter responds to the these themes creating images that explore the love of life and the sentiment of mortality, the fragility of the body, and the vanity of earthly possessions.

Megan Ledbetter lives and works in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She earned her MFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, a BFA from East Tennessee State University, and a BA from Auburn University. She attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2013 and was awarded a Resident Artist Fellowship from Anderson Ranch Arts Center in 2014. Megan was a finalist in the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition at the National Portrait Gallery in 2013 in Washington DC.
