American photographer/director, Micaiah Carter, has quickly emerged as one of the most admired artists of his time. His oeuvre, captured with sophisticated use of color and light, communicates honesty and raw emotion in a way that looks and feels utterly timeless – equal parts nostalgia, forward-looking, yet also, completely of the moment. He has shot for publications such as Vogue, WSJ, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, and GQ, among others. His commercial clients include brands such as Nike, Apple, Verizon, Lancome, Pyer Moss, Thom Browne, Ralph Lauren, and Valentino.
Carter’s work transcends the page and screen, blending fine art, fashion, portraiture and street photography. His beautiful imagery of Black men and women, in particular, has helped illuminate the significant void in representation, on both sides of the camera. Carter is one of several leading artists advancing these important issues. In addition to his work, he is one of the founders of See In Black, an artist collective highlighting and supporting the advancement of Black photographers. Carter’s contributions have already expanded, accelerated, and enriched the evolution of contemporary art and culture, and he is just getting started.
