In order to create his photographs, William Connally writes short stories and makes drawings detailing the characters who have just vacated the scene. He draws inspiration for his original work from literary sources including Franz Kafka, Edith Wharton, and J.D. Salinger, as well as film noir, and amateur theater productions. Connally received his MFA in Photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He has a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Richmond, Virginia. In June 2015, he was an Artist in Residence at Banff Centre for the Arts in Alberta, Canada. Connally was recently awarded a Professional Fellowship in Photography from The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and has artwork in the permanent collection of The Cranbrook Art Museum. He is currently a professor of art at VCU.
