Carol Curry Reach has been a Fine Art Photographer for over 20 years. She was born in Mississippi and received her BA in Fine Art with a concentration in Photography from Rhodes College in Memphis. She then continued on to graduate studies at the San Francisco Art Institute. She has been a South Bay local since 2007 and currently resides in Manhattan Beach.
Her work over the years has transformed from figurative, documentary style portraits into a more abstract style that conveys a certain dream-like calmness. Using mostly water, light, sky and ocean, with a painterly-like eye, she composes each abstract scene in-camera and uses little to no post-manipulation.
“I could have never come to this point in my art without the previous 20 years of photographing people and products, and today, I shoot on that end of the spectrum in order to push further into my abstract compositions.”
