Kathleen Thormod Carr is a fine art photographer, author and teacher. She received her B.F.A. (cum laude) in Photography from Ohio University in 1970. She then studied photography with Minor White at his home in Arlington, Massachusetts. She subsequently worked for Aperture, a fine photography quarterly and book publisher. After spending seven years at the Findhorn Community in Scotland, creating audio-visual programs, multi-media shows, publicity materials and books, Kathleen was staff photographer for the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. She also founded Carr Classics, a successful fine art photography card company that showcases her Big Sur photography.
Kathleen Carr takes a fresh look at the world around her and translates her vision and experience into her photographic work. Whatever photographic medium she works in, her photography speaks to the viewer on an emotional level. When awarded a National Endowment for the Arts Regional Fellowship in 1991, she further explored hand-coloring black and white photography. Kathleen continues to pursue her own photographic work, most recently with Polaroid image and emulsion transfer photography, SX-70 manipulations, black and white infrared, Photoshop, and archival pigment digital printing.
