True Places

Jack Carnelll

Jack Carnell has an unique eye for the textures, intricacies and quirks that make up small town and suburban living in the United States. As Wendy Brenner writes, "Jack Carnell's images are so intimate, so intensely expressive and emotional, that a viewer might fail to notice the absence of people. Here, instead, are the tools we use to orient ourselves and our days, the signs, arrows, scales, directions, filing cabinets and drawers, the wires connecting everything to everything. How fanatically we interact with our small territories. How busy we are, running our tiny worlds, before we disappear altogether."
