Carl Martin

Carl Martin

How do we present ourselves to the world and how is that presentation received - what does it mean? Ultimately, this is not a document that is specific to a place or time, it is more akin to a universal canvassing and inventory of humanity in the ordinary. Yet this plain, clear taking-in with a camera and film places us more in touch with the quirky, transcendent living presence of Martin's Athens, Georgia neighbors and friends than you may have ever imagined possible. We feel we are looking through Carl's eyes. And we are amazed. Supported by a Guggenheim Fellowship, these photographs found Carl and fortunately they have now found us all.
