Chris Carr

Chris Carr was born in North Carolina, but has lived in Orlando, FL for more than 20 years. He’s always felt a drive to create, and has done so via many outlets and mediums, but it was photography that captured and held his attention. The search for unique perspectives that reveal something new in our environment drives Chris’ investigation of the world, his artistic eye, and his Puddle Reflections fine art photography series.

In depicting the world from a new perspective, my hope is that the audience experiences the artworks as a new genre of photography that challenges their perception and minds. This occurs with a brief journey, from the viewer’s initial impression of surrealism or abstraction to the realization that the image comes from something they encounter all the time, right below their own feet, but rarely—if ever—take the time to notice. As an intriguing inherent contradiction, this realization comes as continuing exploration of each tiny detail gradually reveals the truth of the bigger picture.
