Bio: Seattle photographer Charlie Schuck works in both still and motion photography for a range of companies, designers, publications, ad agencies and individuals. Charlie is founder of the Seattle based design space OBJECT and The Frye Museum Store where he curates their selection. He is also serving as a guest curator at the Bellevue Art Museum for an exhibit on NW design for 2015. Inspiration and a deep underlying influence come from the unique geography, history, and weather of the Pacific Northwest. charlieschuck.com

Artist Statement:  I take my inspiration from design. The tangible things people create are what I’m drawn to. There is a residue of original genius in all objects and clothing. These items are not simply intimate objects as they possess the genius of their creator. This is where my personal inspiration to visualize is born. Each new amazing item I come across is like a love affair. I don’t consider my photography art. I have friends who are artists that work in photography and I admire them, as I admire all great art and history.
