While attending college, before any thought of becoming a photographer, Carl Austin Hyatt found himself at a museum in Amsterdam one morning, staring into Rembrandt’s eyes. After twenty minutes in front of the self-portrait, he was finally ‘released’ from the gaze only to realize he had been having an intimate conversation with a master who had lived four centuries earlier. It was as if he had just met the Ancient Mariner. Such was his introduction to the soul of art.
