Caleb Charland’s photography springs from “somewhere between knowledge and uncertainty”; he heightens the familiar, making it strange. All of his images are created in-camera, on a flatbed scanner, or in the darkroom; no content is created or added digitally.
Charland studied at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Skowhegan School of Painting. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Progressive Collection, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. His photographs appeared in the Portland Museum’s Biennial and in a solo show at CMCA in 2014.
