Honorable Mention / 2018 / Nature / Wildlife
Face to Face
The eyes are "windows to the soul". The gaze of a primate penetrates a human being as though a soulmate is trying to make contact, if we could only understand.
Carol Lyon, a self taught photographer, has been a fashion model, live theatre owner, teacher, and zookeeper. Carol began her photographic career ten years ago when she evolved from a senior zookeeper to the zoo’s staff photographer. Her naturalistic animal and pet photography has spilled over into fine art photography.
Carol has always had a knack for pulling the simple from the complex, and nothing on earth gives her more pleasure than the privilege of being let in to a creature’s inner circle. It is this clarity and delight that she distills into her photography.
