CAREY QUINTON HAIDER
photography by Carey Quinton Haider
Haider, an American photographer guilds emotion through a vast body of work in touch
with Americana, youth, rebellion, and the aftermath.
As a child growing up in the farm town of Boring, Oregon Haider was handed a 1970’s
Canon AE-1 early on. The authenticity of understanding story telling whether it be
documentary or a styled narrative naturally took root from being exposed to places and
individuals in his younger years growing up in a motorcycle shop and hitting the road for
months at a time during the summer.
“Those years of sleeping in the back of a pickup truck bed in twenty degree weather while
it was snowing and my grandmother throwing a bag of bullets into the campfire have
never left me. The photography I capture is an extension of life expressed by its subjects
and surroundings.” Like an oil painters landscape Haider chooses to preserve a moment
in time that creates a narrative to influence imagination.
