"Rock stars, CEOs, and toddlers have a lot in common," says Chris Carroll, who has shot many of each during his 25-year career. "They all have high needs and a short attention span." Chris started fast, shooting celebrity editorial for the likes of SPIN, Rolling Stone, Esquire, and GQ while still in his twenties. He went on to work for numerous national magazines and advertising clients, and continues to hone his wryly observed style of portraiture. The shift to digital has meant that Chris has the darkroom of his dreams right there in the Mac on his desk. Since moving out of Tribeca September 1st, 2001, he and his family have lived in the charming village of Nyack, twenty miles up the Hudson from Manhattan. Chris has developed a keen eye for the hidden stories in suburbia, with revealing insights into such subjects as the babysitter's rock band, the local volunteer fire department, and the high school football team. His portraits capture the dualities in his subjects, showing both their ready-for-prime-time faces, and the grace and pathos that lie hidden beneath.
