Carlton began his career as a journalist, editing newspapers before moving on to magazines in New York City then back to Georgia where he now picks up his Nikon for fun. His publishing credits range from the Newnan Times-Herald to The New York Times and he has previously been awarded for excellence in news photography by the Georgia Press Association.
“Photography allows us to capture and study space and time, decipher our surroundings and look more deeply into the lives we live.”
He is devoted to documentary photography as his artform.
“No matter how an image is captured – on film, with a digital SLR or a cellphone – the process is about manipulating, then trapping light. But great documentary photographs - the ones that speak to us and endure - capture the energy of a moment that is lost for eternity as soon as it happens – unless someone anticipates it and has a camera.”
The concept of his business, Revival Images, began in December 2017 when Carlton proposed a documentary photography project to Brown’s Guitar Mill luthier Jon Brown and Vinylyte Record and Skate founder Jesse Yates. The project documented, in depth and detail, the goings on in the Newnan, GA store for the next year. In February 2019, "24 Frames," a fine arts photography exhibit was displayed in the space in which it was created.
Limited edition fine art prints from "24 Frames" were the first in a series of signed and numbered collections released in 2019 at www.revivalimages.com.
All Revival Images prints are museum-quality giclée prints (aka Archival Pigment Prints) produced exclusively on Hahnemuhle FineArt Archival Papers by Atlanta-based Digital Arts Studios.
