Charlie Welch is a photographer living in Brooklyn, NY. He received a BFA in Photography at Otis Art Institute/Parsons School of Design in 1989. After college he moved to New York in 1989 and assisted many fashion and portrait photographers and then slowly transitioned into visual display for stores like Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman.  From 2006 to 2008, he studied at Metáfora International Workshop in Barcelona, Spain, focusing on sculpture, installation and public intervention.  Charlie then returned to New York and launched a career as a set designer and prop stylist for advertising and magazines.

All of the expertise from Charlie's commercial work come into play in his fine art. Photography is his main medium but he also incorporates sculpture and collage. Constructed environments and playful sets are signatures of his work.  Charlie conveys narratives about identity formation, public and private selves, and how we navigate through daily life physically and emotionally.
