Everyone has a story.
I set out to photograph and interview 364 different people where ever I was in the country and world.
These are their stories. I give gratitude for these strangers allowing me to tell their story and am honoured by their openness.
I promised an exhibition at the end of the project and this is the beginning. Those portraits and stories not able to be viewed in this exhibition can been seen at my project website
About the artist:
I am Carla, a problem solver, an ideas person, a creative and story teller; firstly with words and now in this exhibition with images and words.
I wrote my first masterpiece in primary school, published community newsletters when I was 19 with my first gig as a ‘journalist’ and had my second story published when I was 30 as a mature aged student. I then worked in publishing, was published again when I was 36, made audio and visual documentaries of people I met when I travelled in Europe and Japan, won a NSW Premiers Scholarship for Communication, edited and published a book of poetry. All that besides building two houses, three renos, raising two gorgeous children and working and studying fulltime.
THEN on July 2 2014 I started something for ME. Documenting 364 + 1 people with my 50mm lens, in B&W and have them tell me their story.
