Charlie White


Charlie White is a photographer who constructs images with complex sets and fabricated characters. White is part of the “post-photography” school of hyper constructed photos, where the viewer must ask if the scene is accurate or intentionally falsified. White graduated from the School of the Visual Art in NYC and the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA. He began his career creating photography steeped in special effects and images of pornography. The artist created a body of photos titled “Understanding Joshua” as a metaphor and poster boy for all men who’ve ever suffered rejection and low self-esteem. Joshua is a visual metaphor for male vulnerability. NPR and PBS featured the series, and in 2006 the artist presented a series titled “Everything is American” in Wohnmaschine, Berlin, f a Projects, London, and at Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York.
