Joseph Gallivan interviews photographer Carl Bower
On Tuesday, November 16, 2021, Joseph Gallivan interviews photographer Carl Bower. His show of portraits Private Fears runs now at Blue Sky Gallery until Nov. 27, 2021. Bower talks about finding his subjects, how he talks to them about their deep, specific fears, and how he then arranges to shoot their portrait another day. He talks about how he chooses location and setting, and the importance of silence when connecting with his subjects, some of whom he will sit with for hours. Although Carl Bower focuses mostly on people living hard lives near his home in Denver, Colorado, he manages to bring out the humanity and vulnerability that hides behind fear and pain.
