“In every image there is a hidden story, and that is the story that belongs solely to the photographer.”
Carol Brooks Parker has been intrigued by photography her entire life, but it wasn’t until she and her husband acquired a sailboat and started to cruise the South Pacific that she began to seriously use the camera to capture and re-interpret the world around her. Her stated goal is to produce works that project a painterly, rather than photographic, aura. Utilizing refined compositions, with a strong eye for color, gesture, and texture, she captures images that she further develops using digital technology to reflect her personal vision of the subject matter. Carol lives near Tucson, Arizona, where she also raises horses destined for show jumping competition. When home from the sea, she concentrates on nature, wildlife, and equestrian subjects. Her award-winning images have been represented by fine art galleries in New York and Florida, and have appeared in exhibitions across the country including the San Diego Museum of Natural History and the Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Art. She is a Sony Imaging Pro member and a professional member of the Equine Photographers Network. She displays her work in a unique mobile showroom open by appointment at her residence in Arizona.
