Photographer & Musician Charles Brooks

Charles Brooks is an internationally recognized photographer, celebrated for his distinctive portrayal of musical instruments.

His Architecture In Music series is showcased in leading galleries and museums worldwide, and in 2023, the French state of Alps Maritime acquired a significant portion of his oeuvre for permanent public display.

Brooks' upcoming exhibitions in Bucharest, Switzerland, Stockholm, and California from 2024 to 2025 underline his status as a leading figure in contemporary photography.

Brooks' transition from an accomplished cellist, with principal positions in symphonies across China, Chile, and Brazil, to a full-time photographer lends a unique depth and authenticity to his art. His intimate understanding of music and craftsmanship resonates through his photographic work.
