Keith Carter is an internationally recognized photographer and educator. He was born in Madison, Wisconsin in 1948, but was raised in a small town on the Louisiana border and in Beaumont, Texas where he lives today. His work is heavily influenced by his life growing up in the American south, and by his single mother, who ran her own photo studio and had a talent for photographing children. Carter has been commended for his vivid and nostalgic portrayal of the Southern landscape and its people. He has published eleven monographs of his black and white photographs, and his works are included in numerous permenant collections nationwide, including the Art Institute of Chicago; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the George Eastman House; the Museum of Fine Arts of Houston; and the Wittliff Collection of Southwestern and Mexican Photography at Southwest Texas State University.
