Synopsis:

Uncle Charlie was my favorite uncle. He’s my godfather. My grandfather was a grade-A hood, hustling, pimping women, abusive. My mother got out, but Uncle Charlie never did. My mother made sure I had an education. I went to art school. In 1981, I started realizing that my uncle was an interesting person to take pictures of, and it became my family album. Charlie is fifty-one years old now and his life is a mess. He blames his kids, he blames his ex-wife, he blames my mother he thinks he is the ultimate victim. I know enough about his life to know how he got there, but emotionally I can’t cut him any slack. I know it’s because he had an abusive childhood, but that doesn’t give you the right to fuck up your kids. Still, you know, I feel for him. He’ll always be my Uncle Charlie.

Marc Asnin has been photographing his Uncle Charlie for eleven years. Charlie and his five children (Charles, Joe, Brian, Mary, and Jamie) lived together in Bushwick, Brooklyn. This is the story of his tattos, his guns, his uneployment, his illness, his poverty, and his drug problems.

Marc Asnin is based in New York City and has been photographing for twenty years. He developed a curiosity for photography as a child growing up in Brooklyn, inspired by his father, an advertising photographer. Marc’s resume is extensive. His various awards include the W. Eugene Smith Grant, the Mother Jones Documentary Award, and the Alicia Patterson Fellowship. He has also taught at institutions such as the International Center of Photography and the School of Visual Arts.

Book Description CONTRASTO, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Marc Asnin s Uncle Charlie is a twenty-five year visual diary of dramatic intimacy and intensity that chronicles the isolation, dependency, conflict and death afflicting a mentally ill, impoverished man and his wives, girlfriends and children. Motivated by his youthful remembered admiration of Uncle Charlie as a big, tough, tattooed guy with a gun, Asnin reached out to his uncle only to discover an anorexic, catatonic, isolated man. Uncle Charlie begins as an exploration of the discontinuity between youthful memories and discovered reality. The detailed, intimate images captured here overcome the unreliable recording of memory and confront a life too quickly discarded from humanity s collective consciousness.
