Artist Statement

I use photography as a means of self-expression. The most important quality of a photograph, as in all of art, is to evoke an emotional response. I prefer to capture surrealistic moments when I can, the play of light and colors and unusual situations as they unfold. As a passionate runner, being aware of my surroundings tends to produce some surprise scenes instead of forcing an image of time with my camera. Currently I have been concentrating on collaborations with other international poets who interpret my photos with their powerful words, creating an art form that compliments each other. I am also exploring and creating works which combine my painting and photography.

Carl Scharwath has appeared globally with 175+ journals selecting his writing or art. Carl has published three poetry books and his latest book Playground of Destiny (Impspired Press). His two photography books were published by Praxis in Africa. His photography was also exhibited in the Mount Dora Center for the Arts gallery and The Leesburg Center for the Arts. Carl was the art editor for Minute Magazine (4 years), is a contributing editor for ILA Magazine and was nominated for The Best of the Net Award (2021.) He is also a competitive runner, and a 2nd degree black-belt in Taekwondo.
