Jack Alterman is a native of Charleston, South Carolina and lives on nearby Wadmalaw Island. 

His viewfinder has been framing the faces, buildings and landscapes of Charleston since the 1970s. 

He is an alumnus of the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California.  His photography has been published nationally in many books and magazines and he is the author of three books, Cornices of Charleston, 2005, My City Charleston, 2015 and My Lazy Eye, available in January 2021.. 

Jack’s images document the city and its inhabitants from every angle, and he’s still finding inspiration from this muse.
