The Center for Photography at Woodstock (CWP) presents CARBON, a site specific exhibition by the artist Charles Lindsay. Fascinated by space exploration and abstract art, Lindsay created “camera-less photographs” by experimenting with and distorting negatives and carbon based emulsions. The result is an interactive, multi-media installation that fuses sculptures (made with recycled bio-tech equipment), images, videos, and audio recordings. In conjunction with CARBON, the CPW will host the multi-media concert Trout Fishing in Space. The one-night only event will be held on Saturday, December 10 at 7:00 pm and will feature the audio and visual art of five different performers, including Lindsay.

Charles Lindsay is a photographer and musician with a degree in geology. His work explores our modern interactions with the earth. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship for his CARBON project. Aperture offers Lindsay’s limited-edition print Brown Trout, California.
