About Charles

Charles Jay Williams is a photography enthusiast and travel nut who is constantly on the move. He enjoys snapping scenes from the urban streets he encounters on his adventures and transforming these into colourful, abstract images.

Since he was a child, Charles has engaged in various forms of documenting the world around him using colour, light and his own sunny disposition. His fourth grade teacher went so far as to say that he had a “true artist’s eye”. This same teacher inspired him to pursue his dream of travelling the globe and sharing his creative vision with people from all over the world.

Although Charles has never formally studied art, he has always had a fascination with colour. His greatest pleasure is to take photos apart, examine their inner workings and piece them back together in a colourscapes of wonder.

His photographs reflect this affinity, for they show an approach to imagery that is based in deconstructing figures into their abstract parts and re-configuring these into new visions.

His photographs have been featured in German fashion magazine Hät, as well as in nature photography journal Das Caterpillar. His works have been exhibited at galleries in Berlin, Melbourne and Shanghai.

Charles hopes that people who stumble across this site will find something to enjoy in his unique contribution to the world of art. His goals for the future include photographing goats in Mongolia, and one day raising goats of his own with his wife and companion, Leanne.
