Artful Living in Hickory, NC, Features Works by Carl Moser
Living in Hickory, NC, will present an exhibition of photographs
by Carl Moser, on view from Aug. 1 - 31, 2006.
Hickory native and World War II veteran Carl Moser began his career as a successful brick and rock mason. But as a husband and father he started recording special occasions with his camera and eventually founded the Catawba Valley Camera Club in 1954. However, it wasn't until 1983 when he won first place in the national Eastman Kodak photographic contest that he considered becoming a professional photographer. At the age of 62.. Moser became a self-employed photographer.
Today Moser's inspiring images are widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, including The Smithsonian, National Geographic, the Mint Museum, The Kodak Collection and The Hickory Museum of Art. His ability to capture the subtleties of light, color and atmosphere are unsurpassed.
Some of Moser's awards and recognition include: Eastman Kodak cover for 1985 desk calendar; Special Recognition from the Photographic Society of America; Invited by the Chinese government to photograph in the their country; and included in Smithsonian Guides to Natural America: The Atlantic Coast and Blue Ridge.
Moser offers the following, "I went off to war and we had a baby just before I left. When I got back, I got into taking pictures of that baby. I've been at it ever since."
