Kailua Village Artists Featured Artist for the Month of June, 2019, is Kathleen T. Carr

Kathleen T. Carr is a professional and fine art photographer, teacher, author, and a former Polaroid Creative Uses Consultant. She 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. Kathleen received a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship in 1991. Her award-winning work has been exhibited internationally, purchased for private collections, and has appeared in numerous books and periodicals. Her four books are Dolphins: Kindred Spirits (2016), Polaroid Transfers; Polaroid Manipulations (Amphoto Books 1997 & 2002), and To Honor the Earth (HarperSanFrancisco, 1991).

Kathleen is president and a founding member of SOKO (South Kona Artists Collective), who host an Artists Open Studio Tour during the last weekend in February each year. She is also a member of the art group, West Hawaii Artists Tribe (WHAT).

Her journey in photography reflects her journey in life: "I seek to experience the radiance in all life and have my images express that radiance tangibly enough so that others may see it, too. Caring deeply about nature, especially when I see such environmental destruction in the world, I want my photography to inspire people to honor the earth and all who live upon it." Her current passions are digital infrared, landscapes, photographing and filming dolphins, whales and other life underwater, and the digital darkroom.
