Join us on Thursday, September 21, at 7pm for our next Speaker Series with photographer Sandy Carson.
Sandy Carson is a Scottish photographer who emigrated to the United States in 1993 to pursue cycling, and enjoyed a 15-year career traveling the world as a professional cyclist, where he honed his skills as a photographer.
Sandy has exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally, including Houston Center For Photography, Lawndale Arts Center, Houston, The University of Texas, Trinity University in San Antonio, Finch & Ada Gallery, New York, Musée de l’Elysée, Switzerland, and Street-Level Photoworks, Glasgow. A monograph of his work on the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, Paradise Has Relocated, was published in 2010. His second book We Were There is a symbiotic study of nearly a decade documenting concert fandom as shot from the pit. His commercial editorial work is published in The New York Times, Aperture, The Wall Street Journal, American Photography, The Guardian, The Oxford American, Juxtapoz, The Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, and MIT Technology Review. His commercial clients include Virgin, Nike, Red Bull, Remington, ESPN, NPR, Disney, Ebay, Volcom, Fender, and Atlantic Records. He currently lives and works in Austin, Texas, and is represented by INSTITUTE.
