Successful photographers of all stripes rely, in varying proportions, on a combination of learned instinct (commonly called “eye” in the business), situational luck, and technical mastery (of equipment and processes) to accomplish their work. San Antonio photographer Charlie Kitchen, whose singular work really belies comparison, evinces a sharp eye for arresting (mostly natural) images and an advanced technical understanding of the analog photo process.

By employing an inventive form of in-camera collage, Kitchen creates new and striking pieces (both investigative and experimental) that juxtapose typical elements of photography with the manipulation of rigid geometric shapes and patterns. The combination of these two elements, often considered opposites (one organic, one synthetic), plus Kitchen’s knack for shots that are both desolate and inviting, makes for some impressive output.



At his first full-fledged solo exhibition in town, Kitchen will show new material, created on a recent road trip through the Southwest, and celebrate the release of a book entitled (as is the exhibit) The Other Side of the Sky.
