Dylan Fagan was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee. As a child, he spent many afternoons photographing everything that he saw using countless disposable cameras and playing his dad's drum set. Even though the prints revealed that he usually had his thumb over the lens, and the neighbors often complained about his drumming, both photography and music continually fascinated him.

Dylan eventually found himself at the Savannah College of Art and Design where he learned how to properly use a camera. While there, he found that his passion was in documentary and fine art photography that told a visual story. He also became heavily involved with the school's radio station. 

Dylan's photography work has been exhibited in many group shows, including SCAD's premiere photography exhibition Silver & Ink. He has also used his storytelling skills to edit stories for WABE Atlanta’s visual slideshow series Atlanta Sounds and his photography for SCAN Magazine won him a handful of national awards. He spent two years as the producer of StoryCorps Atlanta and is currently a photo researcher and audio producer for HowStuffWorks.

He is particularly proud of his contributions to the second season of the podcast The Stuff of Life and his recent instrumental project, Panola.

Dylan Fagan currently spends almost all of his time working on something involving either headphones or a camera.
