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.
