Portraits of the Soul – Photography by Charles Hildreth
The portrait work of Charles Hildreth is instantly recognizable – his unique blend of stunning models and strong compositions evoke an emotional response to the depth of each image. His style is signature, yet each work is entirely original – a visual journey for his audience to embark on.
Charles describes his work below:
My work, to me, is flawed and always will be, as it continues to be a reflection of me, the photographer. I’m not a photographer’s photographer. I can’t sit in a room and chat about camera logistics or ratios, nor have I ever had the desire to. I know what works for the content I produce and gradually grow from a core of photography appreciation.
If I could one day fit in among other artists as a storyteller, I think it would be a better fit than photographer, but for now, this is the one medium where I can explore this desire to produce art. I have never wanted to pigeon-hole myself into one particular craft. In the future I hope to continue submit work to publications, print work for local art shows, and explore a world full of engaging individuals.
I don’t want to be the photographer you see once for a portrait. I want to tell the story of your life. I want to show the world who you were in the days you lived.”
