Carl’s special photography interests include landscapes, architecture, and bridges. His subjects also include manipulated colorful abstractions with a hint of surrealism and symbolism. Carl said “I became seriously interested in photography as a record of my explorations in the natural environment of southwest Missouri and northern Arkansas. I soon found that the hiking trips had become secondary to the photography.
The thing I love about photography is that it sharpens my visual and emotional sensitivity to the world around me. The camera lens acts as a conduit to see beyond the mundane and focus on the beautiful interplay of light and space.”
