“Invisible” A discussion and examination of race, fine art, ethno-centricism, and technology. Black people are American, yet we are segregated and treated as if our art, our history, our culture is not inextricably linked to America or is somehow foreign. Why?

Carr attended Morehouse College for his undergraduate studies (sociology) and Columbia University for graduate work in Medieval Studies. He is intrigued by the history of cultural expressions, power relationships, semiotics, post-modernist sociological theory and interpersonal dynamics; with the intent of challenging contemporary themes relating to normalcy, deviancy, tradition and alternative culture via the platform of nude photography.
