New photography by Carolyne D. Court.

Carolyne is a visual art photographer from Tacoma, WA. Her current work involves shooting fellow artists. In this instance her model was Dana Livermore. “Normally I try to avoid using software programs to alter my photographs, but I wanted the photograph to convey the source of her artistic inspiration and give the viewer a sense of origin, so I after our session I went into photoshop and transposed images of maps–graciously supplied to me from Dana’s personal collection–in layers across the original image. Cartography is an essential element in Dana’s poetry and I felt it was important to include that. The maps represent her connection to the geography and environment of the Great Lakes.”
