Thomas Carr is an archaeologist and photographer living in Denver, Colorado. He received his BA in 1992 from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and his MA in 1996 from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
He works with digital and film cameras and makes traditional silver-emulsion darkroom prints and archival inkjet prints. His work has been shown in numerous juried, group, and solo exhibitions over the last 40 years, including solo exhibitions at the Denver Public Library, Center of Southwest Studies, University of Denver Museum of Anthropology, and Dairy Arts Center.
In characterizing his work, he states “as a young photographer in the 1980s, I found myself drawn towards making images of places with subtle indications of a past human presence. Having been trained in photography, I endeavor to document the essence of these places in visual terms. This subtle sense of presence is what I seek in my photography.”
