Wes Carson

Show ran from 7/1/2010 to 7/17/2010


Opening Reception:  Friday June 25, 6-9pm

Walking on Water is the latest series of work by fine art photographer Wes Carson. In these photographs, a lonely figure wanders through a blue water-like landscape. Carson manipulates the focus of his camera to create a dream-like scenario that suggests something other-worldly. The images are printed on watercolor paper to enhance the ethereal quality and to give a painterly effect to the work.

Wes Carson is a former assistant to legendary photographer Irving Penn, and currently the head of photography for Miami International University of Art and Design. His main body of work involves the figure in motion. Carson’s experience includes over 20 years as a commercial photographer and over 10 years as a fine art photographer.

Jinsoo Seo says about his work: “It started from the question of the mass-media’s influence on the public. All media have their own rhetoric–especially, in a special time, in a special case and in special circumstance. The rhetoric of the mass-media plays an important role in that it can move people’s thoughts and actions. They use their rhetoric to speak to the public, and I use mine. Mine is not as powerful as theirs, but I am talking about the mass-media to help people understand it:  if they have information and opinions about it, however, the public can make a right decision. We know all of this, but we forget sometimes.”
