Beginning on June 7 as part of the First Fridays on Broad Artwalk exhibits, Carolina One Real Estate announced that the work of well-known local photographer Jack Alterman will be on display throughout June and July,
Alterman’s interest in photography was peaked while he was serving in the Marine Corps in 1967. He continued his studies at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara and in 1980 opened Alterman Studios in Charleston. Alterman is best known for his work in environmental and studio portraiture as well as in landscape and architectural photography. His work has been exhibited at the 2000 and 2002 Piccolo Spoleto Festivals in Charleston and at the Gibbes Museum of Art.
Alterman founded the Charleston Center for Photography in 2002 to promote and teach the art and craft of photography, attracting a group of instructors from among the area’s top professional photographers. In 2004, Alterman developed and coordinated a multimedia exhibition that brought attention to Charleston’s homeless population. His book, Cornices of Charleston, in collaboration with painter Susan Romaine, was published in 2005.
According to the artist, “The landscapes, architecture and rivers of the Lowcountry are an endless source of inspiration. I look for new perspectives that give me an entree to a world often ignored a world simultaneously old and unseen, but exciting and new.”
The office is located at 49 Broad Street at the corner of Church Street and the exhibit is open to the public. For more information, call 577-0001.
