Reception: Thursday May 21, 2015 6-8 PM

For Carol Brooks Parker, photography is more than just a way to record the world around her. “It is not my intention to make a technically accurate representation of my subject matter,” she says. Instead, she aims to use the camera, along with the tools of digital enhancement, to make painterly images that communicate her feelings about a place, to create a mood that expresses the spirit of the environments that she records with her camera. 

Parker is always careful not to stray too far from what she calls the “photographic reality” of those environments. From pictures taken underwater to those that explore the effect of light in a variety of scenes that range from land to sea to sky, her work shows an extreme sensitivity to the natural world and its plants, animals, and people. With a sharp eye for attractive, balanced compositions and an ability to use light and color in a way that gives each scene a strong feeling of depth and space, the photographer is able to conjure up a world that brings us closer to nature while also showing us the artist’s personal vision.
