The Arctic Circle cuts across Lapland with a palette of frigid winter light where colors are subtle and make a statement. With seven months of winter, such an environment emboldens an awareness of isolation, vulnerability and trust. Yet, it provides an opportunity to inspire and strengthen our inner selves, to self-reflect and observe our passage in time, both in a literal sense, and metaphorically. Our experiences reflect our personal odysseys as we move from a place we know to one that we are just discovering.
Carole is one of few photographers who is also a published photo historian, a combination that influences the photographs she makes. While traveling or at home, she captures cultures, people, and cityscapes with her unique style, to express her experiences during the day or night. She uses different kinds of cameras ranging from digital to film to create and record her imagery, often moving from the literal to the impressionistic. Her photographs have been included in many group and solo exhibitions worldwide and she has received numerous awards for her photography and photographic research.
