Cary Fagan, an upcoming graduate of the University of Houston, with a BA in computer science and information systems, is a photographer and visual artist. Born in 1990 in Phoenix, Arizona, he later relocated to the Houston area. Cary's interests in photography and other arts developed after his high school career and during his years at Art Institute - Houston.
In 2010, the purchase of his first film camera after being inspired by images admired online. Years of honing techniques and creating a style of shooting that is unmistakably "Fagan" led to a wider recognition, fueled by the internet age. The Houston Chronicle once remarked, "...Instagram took Cary Fagan to a whole new level."
2016 brought more success and new equipment which was used to shoot some of his most notable work in New York City - the Kanye West collection during fashion week. Creative momentum has taken his exhibits internationally, as far away as Russia, and back to North America, in Toronto and Montreal, while being printed in publications across the globe. On US soil, besides New York, Fagan has shown in venues in Houston and Dallas, to Los Angeles and Atlanta. Soon, his work will be featured at Onyx Art in Phoenix, Arizona, and in the Midwest, as part of OnyxChicago, a pop-up gallery event in May, 2018.
