About

This is a black and white photograph of a fish being hooked in the mouth. You can only see the head of the fish as the line reels it in from the water. A fly is sticking out of its mouth as the water shakes around the fish and composition. This is silver gelatin print on paper. Charles Lindsay's glorious celebration of fishing and nature is performed with a zeal rarely witnessed in art photography. At a time when cool formalism and arms-length image-making dominate, Lindsay forgoes indifference and dives right in. With his mud-splashed camera, he wades into nature, capturing the energy and intensity of the environment around him, bristling and teaming with life. His sometimes delicate, sometimes overwhelming images fuse man with nature, absorbing the struggle of natural law and free will. The results are gorgeous black-and-white images, which yank the viewer into their world, rendering passive viewing impossible. Charles Lindsay was born in San Francisco in 1961. He lived in Tokyo for ten years and worked as a photojournalist, documenting Southeast Asia and environmental issues. In 1995 he returned to the United States and has lived in New York City since then. He has published five books; his most recent is Lost Balls, Great Holes, Tough Shots, and Bad Lies (Bulfinch, 2005). His work has been featured in the New York Times Magazine, Blind Spot, and Aperture magazine and is in the permanent collections of the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Another body of his work is the focus of the Aperture book and exhibition, Upstream: Fly Fishing in the American West, which continues to tour the country.
