Piece description from the artist
The Leaf Series – I found this collection of pressed leaves in glass at a garage sale. I back lit them on a light box with a yellow filter.
Carl Ellis has been a photographer since his early teenage years. From High School yearbook staff to college events and functions, to the Bronx Zoo, and all the way to Africa. His art has been featured in group shows across the country, and even a few solo shows in NYC. He is constantly evolving his technique and style while keeping his work exciting and relevant.
In his work, Carl focuses on the natural world, and most of his photographs are considered abstract or contemporary. His shooting style combines vivid color and motion and he prefers to use natural or existing light. Carl recently opened his own photography studio. He truly loves his work and is happy to offer his services. From basic profile shots to family portraits, to intimate photo studies, and his favorite, commissioned art pieces.
Enjoy my work!
Carl currently lives and works in Maplewood, New Jersey.
