Photography

Charlie Pott is a photographer based out of Kansas City, Missouri. He received his BFA in photography from the University of Kansas and is currently a first year graduate student pursuing an MFA at the University of Iowa.

His interest in photography stems from its latent narrative elements. By way of found imagery, collage, and family archives, Charlie’s images explore photography’s unnervingly sublime relationship with memory, documentation, and impermanence, acting as both a cathartic reckoning and opportunity for serendipitous chance.
