Carolyn Marks Blackwood: Cloud 1

Here’s a quick Q&A with photographer Carolyn Marks Blackwood, whose work is currently on exhibit at the Albany Institute of History & Art in the group show, “Summer Exposure: Photographic Works.”

Q. WHAT IS YOUR CONNECTION TO OR FAVORITE CHARACTERISTIC OF THE HUDSON RIVER VALLEY?

A: The Light.

Q: WHERE DO YOU DRAW YOUR INSPIRATION FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS?

A: Mostly from my own backyard – a 120-foot cliff facing west overlooking the Hudson River – the Catskills, Kingston and the Kingston light – the sunsets in the west, and it is where much of the weather comes from.

Q: WHAT PROJECT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW/PLAN TO WORK ON IN THE FUTURE?

A: Very excited to be working on a new series that is very different than my nature work. It is called The Story Series. It will include a photograph and the beginning of a story that the viewer must finish for himself. I will continue to shoot on the Hudson River and bathe in the beauty here.

Carolyn Marks Blackwood’s photographs are currently on exhibit at the Albany Institute of History & Art in the group show “Summer Exposure: Photographic Works” also featuring photographic artwork by Martin Benjamin, Dana Hoey, Tom Fels and William Jaeger. The exhibit remains on view through Sunday, September 7.
