Winners Carrie Shaltz + Zach Hyman

Winners of 3rd Ward’s eighth Solo Show: Artist Duo, Carrie Shaltz + Zach Hyman met last fall and became fast friends through their love of photography and adventure. In December, the two embarked on an 1100 mile road trip that began in San Francisco, included Bakersfield, Mojave, Death Valley, Las Vegas, and concluded in Los Angeles. Equipped with 2 digital cameras, the two photographers turned the lenses on each other to create dreamlike images representing the agony and ecstasy of a forbidden love affair set in the barren and abandoned landscapes of Western America. The entire project was strictly spontaneous – no location scouting, no assistants, no crew, and most importantly… no rules.

All of the images are portraits and/or double self-portraits (using a shutter remote) with either available light or on-camera flash. None of the images are digitally altered or enhanced.

Carrie and Zach will be featured in 3rd Ward’s gallery upon completion of their 3rd Ward residency – stay tuned for the date and time. Special thanks to the amazing jury panel and all the Summer Open Call participants!
