The book firstly illustrates Carucci’s family, but not necessarily in the typical fashion. We are not given imitation studio portraits or a chronological documentation of her family life, but rather snapshots which give insight into Carucci’s life. The photographs depict not what these people look like, but rather Carucci’s relationship with them.
The images themselves have contrasting warm and cool tones, with bursts of vibrant red and blue creating impact and the flesh tones tying the series together.
It is always interesting to hear one photographers journey and methods,
@Carucci_studio Thank you. 🙂 #picbod
Carucci:Be true to who you are & be sure of what message you want to put across in your photographs & trust & follow your instincts
#picbod #picbod Carucci only photograpghs her children when they are ok with it. #picbod ‘my children’ spans 10yrs, in the past 6yrs her kids have helped her ‘feel american’, so her photography evolved naturally. #picbod Carucci loves the mystery of one frame, what happened b4 and after? allows people to bring more of themselves to the work…. #picbod Carucci doesn’t take photos constantly. Her husband helps with editing down the images, telling him to decide on a fave after 5 secs #PICBOD Carucci says her & Sally Mann’s photos of their children are no different to some people post on facebook. #picbod Carucci found inspiration from her mother, as she enjoyed being photographed… #picbod Big inspirations for Carucci were Mary Ellen Mark, Nan goldin, Sally Mann Emmet Gowin… #picbod listening to Elinor Carucci’s interview.
