Join us for an artist talk with Portsmouth photographer and 2020 Piscataqua Region Artist Advancement Grant award winner Carl Austin Hyatt. Hyatt is known for his large-format gelatin silver and platinum prints of landscapes and portraits. Hyatt’s extensive travel to Peru and South Africa taught him about the sacred quality of stone while studying with indigenous cultures, in particular shamans who worked to tap the healing and spiritual qualities of stones. This award allowed Hyatt to spend uninterrupted time exploring the palpable connection he feels with stones and producing images to capture that invisible essence.
