In his role as an exhibiting artist, Carl is very well respected and successful. His photographs of beautifully observed urban surfaces are often reminiscent of abstract or minimal paintings; other series of his work are of landscape 'surfaces' without horizons.
Carl's works are beautiful and conceptual. They are as much about the act of photographing and the culture of photography as they are about the found subject. Here are a couple of his works for you to see, and you can see more at www.janmantonart.com
