“I have been an artist since a young age, with photography as my primary medium since I received my first SLR as a gift from my mother as a sixteen year old. My mother is also a photographer & worked with my Great Uncle in his photography studio in Washington DC. As a little girl, I saw him print an image in the darkroom—this was a pivotal moment for my imagination,” says Carrie.
“Now, my primary creative goal is to create evocative images that speak to contentment, joy, love, and other more subtle emotions. Typically, my commercial work is made using a Nikon D700 and assorted lenses, most of which belonged to members of my family. I also work with film, including expired film that creates beautiful surprises upon processing that enhance the emotional nature of my photos.”
