Installation Views (Craig Carlson), Southwestern Art Gallery, “The Dazzle of Day”

  The photographs being exhibited by Craig Carlson in The Dazzle of Day, is a project started in April of 2016. His “Pedestrian Project“ looks at the issues of pedestrians and their street behavior and dislocation; which includes homelessness, age, isolation in thought, imagined dreams, street gestures (movement), environment, clothing and social status. The project was photographed in four different film formats: 35mm, medium format in 21/4×21/4 inches, 6x9cm and in large format,4×5 inches. The “Pedestrian Project“ was shot within a grid pattern from S. Figueroa Street to Los Angeles Street and from W. 9th Street To W. 3rd Street in downtown Los Angeles.

“A Photograph is as personal as a name, a fingerprint, a kiss. 
It concerns me intimately and passionately. I am not ashamed of that.”

 A Flâneur
“The crowd is his element, as the air is that of birds and water of fishes. His passion and his profession are to become one flesh with the crowd. For the perfect flâneur, for the passionate spectator, it is an immense joy to set up house in the heart of the multitude, amid the ebb and flow of movement, in the midst of the fugitive and the infinite.”
– Charles Baudelaire
