Craig Carlson Retrospective Opening, October 13th, 5-7, a bit of a talk at 7

A 15 year retrospective of San Diego photographer Craig Carlson, whose exhibit work focuses primarily on black-and-white documentary-style images of small communities throughout the United States, will be on display Oct. 5–Nov. 5, 2015 at the Hyde Art Gallery at Grossmont College. An artist’s reception is set for 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13, followed at 7p.m. by a gallery talk by the artist.
Carlson has taught photography at San Diego State University’s School of Art, Design, and Art History of over twenty-years.

One of Carlson’s images from his “Sunset Boulevard” project, was recently published in the photo book, “Both Sides of Sunset: Photographing Los Angeles.”
Carlson became interested in photography in his early teens and began shooting for student publications in high school and college. He has also owned and operated for 35 years a commercial photography business and holds a bachelor’s from San Diego State University and a master’s from Humboldt State University which he received in 1976. He is a manuscript and book proposal reviewer for Focal Press and the author of “Look Before You See,” a self-published introduction to the art of photography.

When the Taliban ruled Afghanistan, taking a photo was a crime. After the regime fell in 2001, a photography revolution was born. Now, as foreign troops and media withdraw, Afghanistan is left to stand on its own, and so are its journalists. Set in a modern Afghanistan bursting with color and character, the film follows four Afghan photojournalists as they navigate an emerging and dangerous media landscape — reframing Afghanistan for the world, and for themselves. Through intimate interviews, powerful photojournalism and never-before- seen archival footage shot in secret during the Taliban regime, the film connects audiences with four humans in the pursuit of the truth.
