“I am fascinated by the natural world around us and how, if we look close enough, we can more strongly sense both its beauty and harshness,” she writes on her website. “My camera lens allows me to explore, embrace, and share my emotional connection with nature. What I most want people to take away from my photographic work is to have sensed one small slice of their environment in a new way: to see something they have not experienced before in quite the same way.”
Indeed, her close-up vision of the natural world comes through in our event - with “Rooted in Stone,” “Slow Rush” and “Godiva’s Locks,” we are able to share in her vision while we try to raise some much-needed funds for Positive Impact. In addition to her shooting career, Carolyn also is Professor and Chair of Radiology and Associate Dean for Research at Emory University School of Medicine.
