    "You are one lucky person to have chosen this photographer's work to peruse. Why? Because he has such an original twist on photographic law. I wouldn't say that there exists necessarily a law of photography, perhaps an understanding of what works and what doesn't work or of what should be chosen for public viewing and what should remain hidden in vaults of the commoner. I feel like a king who happened by chance upon great literature or a fine gem stone: blessed and enjoying life more fully."

    "Mr. Viola, as I call him, always knows how to find interesting textures and unussual angles to capture quite common subjects in an unfamiliar way. Especially his monochromatic work is excellent. He is one of the people that makes me look at things in more than one way."

    "Charles' pictures are full of elegant beauty. Always carefully composed, always perfect, but, even more importantly, always characterised by finesse and elegance; this je nai sais quoi that makes you want to look at them for a long, long time. It's hard to put it into words, so just have a look at his photos and you'll know what I mean."

    "I aspire to one day be able to take as much care with every aspect of the shot as Charles does.
    Truly an inspiration. I loe his pictures of everday things. He always manages to find another angle."

    "Charles' nature photos are an inspiration to me, the care and composition evident in every image are teaching me a lot I didn't know about photography, and the consistently high quality is a goal I aspire to match. His photos of Portland are interesting to me, familiar places from a different viewpoint."
