Bio

Carl Austin Hyatt uses classical photography to explore the intersection of the human and natural worlds. Hyatt uses an 8x10 large-format view camera to make beautifully composed, vividly detailed, black and white photographs with rich tonal values. 

Hyatt's prints are in private and permanent collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Smithsonian Museum, the Currier Museum.

“Gesture is primal, far older than words. It is the original language of the world. The flight of a heron, the haunting rhythm of its wings, is a gesture from a primordial world we have never seen. So too is the delicate sweep of a willow in the wind. Our presence in this world makes us intimate players in this silent symphony. We were made to be exquisitely expressive and we are. I am especially drawn to the subtle, even thoughtless movements, that reveal an improvisational authenticity unique to this moment and this body.”
