Kathleen T. Carr Artist Statement

“I have always been interested in conveying more than the literal interpretation of what I photograph, whether it be my experience of the subject when I am fully present, or where it leads me creatively to a deeper reality. I seek to experience the radiance in all life and have my images express that radiance tangibly enough so that others may see and feel it, too.”

” I have worked with a variety of techniques and alternative processes, including infrared photography and the digital darkroom. My current passions are digital infrared, landscapes, nature, compositing images, and figurative work. I am a member of the Kailua Village Artists Gallery, the West Hawaii Artists Tribe (WHAT), and president of the South Kona Artists Collective (SOKO).”

Kathleen received a BFA (cum laude) in Photography from Ohio University in 1970, and then studied extensively with Minor White and worked for Aperture, a renowned photography quarterly. She was a staff photographer at the Findhorn Foundation, Scotland, and Esalen Institute, Big Sur, CA during the ‘70s and ‘80s. Kathleen received a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship in 1991, and her photography has received numerous awards – most recently 1st place in the Adult Photography division of the Hawaii Nei 2023 Exhibit at the Wailoa Center in Hilo.
