Photography

Carlos' first solo exhibition, Altered Consciousness, explored subconscious states of mind by manipulating time and light within images. His commercial work includes a variety of weddings, portraits, and cars (his favorite). He worked for Target as a studio portrait photographer in stores, and a photographer's assistant at their corporate photo studios. Nan Goldin and Alfred Stieglitz are his greatest influence. 

Museums

To complete his degree, Carlos' Capstone Project research asked the question How can museum foundations help promote more inclusive and diverse museum practices?  The final product was a guide for executive directors and board members. Here, Carlos offers suggestions as a catalyst for changing museum practices.
