Carlos Diaz

Photographer, instructor at the College for Creative Studies (CCS). As a young man, he intended to become an engineer, but became more interested in photography while working at General Motors as a photographic technician in the mid-1970s.

Topics of great interest to him include carnival workers and automotive plants. Since 2015, he's been on sabbatical from CCS to continue working on his River Rouge plant project, and to begin a new project in Japan involving Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples.
