My name is Trent Lesikar.

I was born in East Texas, raised south of Dallas, and have lived in Austin for 10 years. 

I am currently photographing the complex social landscape of my home state for a project titled, "The Shape of Texas." 

I graduated from The University of Texas in December of 2011 with a Bachelor of Journalism degree and have worked at the university's School of Undergraduate Studies as a photographer and videographer for the past five years.

My work has been featured by The New Yorker, CBS News, The Wall Street Journal, New York Daily News, USA Today, The Denver Post, The Sacramento Bee, The Miami Herald, MSNBC, The Atlantic, The Austin Chronicle, Pitchfork, and others. 

Thanks for looking.
