Charles Stonewall is a fine-art photographer who seeks to create visual poetry through images that converge as part of a heartfelt dance, illustrating themes of solidarity, affliction, hope, fear, and social justice. Born and raised in Easton, PA, Stonewall began his career in Allentown as an industrial photographer with the Pennsylvania Power and Light Company, now known as PPL Electric Utilities. Eventually he moved to Kansas City, MO, to pursue further opportunities, earning his B.F.A. from the Kansas City Art Institute and his M.A. in Studio Art from the University of Missouri in Kansas City. His photographs have been exhibited at numerous venues, including the Louvre Museum in Paris, France; Kutztown University; Lafayette College; Muhlenberg College; Cedar Crest College; and Connexions Art Gallery in Easton, PA. His work has been featured in publications such as Shifting Time: African American Artist 2020-2021 from the Petrucci Family Foundation Collection of African American Art; the Theatre Design & Technology Journal; Black+White Photography magazine; Kansas City’s Urban Times magazine, and the American Indian College Fund Annual Report.
