WALKING ON WATER
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.
