is pleased to present his continued and masterful exploration
into this genre

black and white portraits
that offer a truly novel perspective on photographic portraiture

series, Mr. Charis presents an elegant and powerful extension
of the photographic concerns that have been the catalyst for
all his previous work.
The portraits are artful documents that offer intimate explorations
of a demographic that,
in our day and age, is typically invisible. The conflicted
expressions on their faces
evidences the struggles to find pride and dignity in a post
9-11 society that is apprehensive
to embrace otherness. At the same time, these people are the
faces of America today.
They are the culmination and embodiment of a difficult history
cultural exchange, and the fostering of the global village.
