About Carole Evans
Carole Evans is a London-based photographer specialising in anything to do with people; portraits, networking events, conferences, weddings have come infront of her lens. After initially studying French at University, Carole first took photography seriously in Paris where she was teaching English. Frustrated at not meeting French people, she enrolled on a darkroom printing course and hasn't looked back; a MA in Photographic Studies at University of Westminster ensued, followed by seven years working as Gallery Coordinator at Photofusion in Brixton, where she met many influential photographers and honed her skills in organising events and curating. She is now teaching photography at Richmond Adult Community College and working independently as a photographer and curator.
In 2011, Carole co-founded Portrait Salon with James O Jenkins, an arts council funded project promoting contemporary photographic portraiture.
In October 2013, Carole founded and curated the inaugural Altrincham Arts Festival, a pop-up arts festival turning empty shops of the town into temporary art galleries.
Carole is the co-owner of an original black and white chemical photobooth, and collects old vintage cameras, such as polaroids, and old high street studio photographs. She writes a blog on her thoughts on photography.
