Carlos Caruso’s contribution to the 2018 Water for Life exhibition in Niagara Falls Ontario captures the power and the beauty of water. The imagery found in his piece entitled The Origin of Life connects the inspiration found in nature to the viewer’s imagination and offers a new perspective on traditional landscape photography.

Carlos Caruso, has the characteristic of achieving a perfect composition and aesthetic balance.
Leaves has two great virtues; It is an abstract photographic expression and was captured directly from nature, from reality, hence the beauty that emanates.

Carlos Caruso is reflected in his work, intense and precise.
Carlos begins his artistic quest in a home laboratory at a time when nothing was easy, especially photography.However, thanks to his great effort and dedication he manages to project
the desired, firm and well-founded objectives due to his great talent and sensitivity.
Then, the exhibitions began: publications in newspapers and prizes gratified him, stimulated him and confirmed the mastery of his own language, enriching at the same time his spirit of knowledge and communication.
His works are full of memories. Carlos allows himself to relive moments of the historical past freely, playing with the lights and shadows in his images captures and tells the forgotten secrets of people who once toured those scenarios of life. With great skill he adds details that helps to deepen the dialogue between him and his audience, typical details, unique in each space he handles. In his abstract works in color, the Latin vibration of his blood is felt in the choice of the details, rich in intense colors that contrast each other. In the work “Abstract reflections in the water” these reflections emanate an energy that is transformed into pure emotion, thanks to its subtle movements.
I believe that Carlos Caruso handles the language of his work with great responsibility, since it allows an intimate and profound reflection on the person who admires it. His work is made to last in memory.

Carlos Caruso shows in his photos an exquisite sensitivity. In its landscapes, reveals the use of all the elements that nature gives him to realize a work of art, which is what a good photography has become.
The use of light, the way to compose, harmonize the contrasts of volumes and colors, combine lines and colors, capture some detail to attract the eye of the viewer where it interests you. In short, to look for all the balances, turn each of their images into suggestive forms that, starting from an apparent simplicity, reveal their fine sensitivity and through aesthetic values lead us to a more profound and reflective sight.

Caruso observes nature (what is that?) And culture (what is that?) As two instances and sets the scene as a rematch, although a lot of pipes in this country know well how to become landscape.
