This retrospective represents a sampling of work spanning four decades of photography. Beginning in the late '60's, Charles started by capturing everyday street life, documenting celebrations and vernacular architecture. As a native of South Louisiana, his environment was a rich French culture combined with the influence of many talented painters, sculptors and photographers from the region. Later, his subjects expanded to portraiture, cultural studies, landscapes, markets and the wine-making industry.


About the Author

When Charles bought his first Nikon F SLR forty years ago the resulting studies were of derelict architecture, machinery and also street photography - a genre that the New York Times has called,”…shots of everyday people living out their private lives in public”. In this type of portraiture, he has the keen ability to capture life experiences of people reflected in their faces and gestures.

Over time these pursuits continued in 35mm B&W and color slide formats; he then joined the digital revolution in its early stages. The range of his photography has extended from Great Britain to Central America, the Gulf Coast, South Florida and the Western US. A more recent concentration has been character studies with an emphasis on the film & television industry, event portraiture, multi-ethnic cultural studies, documentary series of festivals, markets & the wine-making industry, the built environment and fine art.
