Carol Horigan Artist's Statement
I came to photography indirectly. Initially my interest in printmaking and painting introduced a desire in me to always have a camera by my side to work out elements of composition and design in order to interpret the world that surrounds me. Looking through a lens, I find I observe differently, more selectively; I compose & recompose. With a photographer's eye, I find that I perceive more abstractly - I see colors, lines, shapes, textures, light. In recent years, photography has become the dominant force.
