Caleb Charland contemporary photography, phenomena and simple physics, no manipulation,straight from camera

Growing up in rural Maine, Caleb Charland spend much of his childhood helping his father remodel their family homes. These experiences instilled an awareness of the potential for the creative use of materials, and the ability to fabricate his visions. Charland earned a BFA in photography with departmental honors from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2004 and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago as a Trustees Fellow in 2010.

Of his work he writes, ‘As I explore the domestic space, from the basement to the backyard, I find ways to exploit the mysterious qualities of everyday objects and familiar materials. Each photograph begins with a simple question, ‘How would this look? Is that possible? What would happen if…?” and develops through a sculptural process of experimentation. This work combines my scientific curiosity with a constructive approach to making pictures. I utilize everyday objects and fundamental forces to elaborate upon experiences of wonder. All images are created in-camera without digital manipulation.’

The others life

I found I read a lot of biographies recently, and I am still buying more.

What am I expecting for in these books?

Could these books offer me the experience of being the others? Or I would say more or less, we are all suffering something that unsatisfied, unpleasant, disappointed, upset or depressed in real life, so one may wish to experience others life, which maybe quite happier and different from one’s original and a biographie happens to offer this oppotunity to the people one expects to be, especially those celebrities. And these lives maybe more realistic to us comparing to novels or fictions.

Or perhaps, a biographie satisfies one’s fever of snooping others life, even the private part, since some happy people are reading too. The others life has an enduring popularity during people’s chat in tea or dinner time. This amazing instinct seems having no connections with the level of education. So should I comfort myself and say “hey they got tough time either” when it is so described in the book?

Hmmm, it is not about history, society, thinking or culture, we are just gossiping…or maybe in proper manners.
