Causey Contemporary is pleased to announce Run From View, an exhibition featuring the unique black and white silver gelatin prints of photographer Chuck Kelton.
Drawn from autobiographical experiences, the work celebrates the chaos and fragmentation of life. Kelton constructs abstracted images which become narratives saturated with metaphorical structure. Inspired visually by landscapes these images tend to be more mythological than temporal. The work clings to classical black and white techniques, Each photograph will be executed as editions of three with the prints within each edition having slight variations.
Chuck Kelton is the owner of Kelton Labs in New York City. For the last twenty five years Kelton has worked as a master printer producing exhibitions, and advertising campaigns for photographers worldwide. His clients have included Lillian Bassman, Danny Lyon, Helen Levitt, Mary Ellen Mark, John Loengard, as well as museums and publications. His photographs are included in the collection of the Bibliotheque Nationale de France. When not in the darkroom, Kelton teaches workshops throughout the country as well as an intensive Independent Projects Seminar at the International Center of Photography.
