The focus of Carlton Taylor’s is dictated more by the opportunity than by a specific theme or subject. The words of Henri Cartier-Bresson summarize his approach nicely – “Photography is, for me, a spontaneous impulse coming from an ever-attentive eye, which captures the moment and its eternity.”
Not missing the days of working with chemicals and paper in the darkroom, Carlton has embraced the digital age, the possibilities on the computer are endless. Carlton is not one to do much manipulation. He still has strong roots in black and white photography from his darkroom days, and now enjoys the ability to do black and white digitally, while including selective bits of color from the original scene. The effect can be both fun and stunning.
Carlton’s work has been accepted into a number of juried shows, has won a number of awards, and is now in many private collections. Carlton is a member of the New Hartford Art League.
Echoing a comment about artists from the New Zealand Prayer Book: May you, through my work, “see creation afresh!”
