The Photographs of Jack Alterman

Jack Alterman is one of Charleston’s most respected artists. He has dedicated much of his forty-year career to capturing images of his hometown, Charleston and the surrounding Lowcountry. His restless energy and artistic perspective have taken him around the world from Charleston to Kathmandu. Born with a vision impairment known as amblyopia or “lazy eye” he joined the Marine Corps as a young man where they taught him to use his good eye to shoot a rifle. He soon shifted his aim to photographing USO shows for Stars and Stripes and became infatuated with photography.

My Lazy Eye is a memoir of his life’s pursuits. With over two hundred photographs selected from his extensive portfolio, Alterman shows us timeless perspectives that blend the old with the new. His essays and photographs will surprise and delight you as he takes you on this personal journey of his work.
