Keith Carter:All the Beautiful Imperfect Things
I came of age during the turbulent Sixties and Seventies. My experiences have led me to make photographs exploring the mythos of time and terrain, the familiar, the magical, and the varied creatures that inhabit our earth. I think of them as a visual diary, as well as meditations on time, place, memory, desire, and regret.
Over the years my explorations have included the use of the traditional chemical darkroom, arcane historical processes, as well as the contemporary digital world. In doing so I have tried to examine both the history of photography, vernacular culture, and our own shared natural histories.
