Carolyn Guild: an American born photographer (1951), Guild is a third generation San Diegan, and she now splits her time with her husband Whitney, between their small beach cottage in Encinitas - California, Northern Baja - Mexico, and their old log cabin, high in the mountains of Northern Utah. Her father almost always had a Rolleiflex or two around his neck, and is responsible for instilling in her, his love of photography. Her photography has been described as â€œdramatic grand vistasâ€, â€œstrangely beautiful and evocative abstractionsâ€, and becoming *surrealistic* once the sun goes down, when long exposures turn water vaporous, stars leave their trails, and clouds resemble the northern lights. When asked â€œWhy black and whiteâ€? Guildâ€™s reply is: â€œTo see in colour is delightful to the eye, but to see in black and white delights the soulâ€¦.. No colour to attract or distract. Only the sensual lines, the shadows and highlightsâ€¦. Lines, light and shapes repeated. Thatâ€™s what delights my soulâ€..
