About Charles Purvis
I create unconventional images with traditional photographic tools.
This has led me to create rather than take, searching for fresh perspectives and interpretations in the interplay of light, subject, and instrument. I'm always listening for what wants to be said and how to say it, how to accentuate experience, and in provoking a reevaluation of perception.
I work almost exclusively with film (20x24, 8x10, 4x5, 120 and 35mm), Polaroid, and the development processes available.
