"She sees nature like no one else, and has a particular affinity for winter, snow, and ice. We spoke on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River." Musee Magazine
“Carolyn Marks Blackwood is a modern day artist for whom the Hudson River is also an unfailing muse. Consumed by her daily photographic study of the water over which her studio is perched—as well as the sky that hovers above it—Blackwood’s images are not the romantic vistas of her predecessors, but almost their opposite: focused close-ups that capture the river’s power through the drama of detail. Instead of coalescing several scenes into one, her photographs are a celebration of the variation a single geographic location can elicit through the constantly changing conditions of wind, light, day, night, temperature and tide.” —Excerpt from the essay Elements of Place by Carol Diehl

Biography: Situated in the Hudson Valley New York, photographer Carolyn Marks Blackwood reframes segments of nature’s various elements, air, ice, and water, from her surroundings along the Hudson River, into perspective bending abstract photographs with painterly expression. Just like her predecessors of The Hudson River School, the romantic landscape of the Hudson offers Blackwood a plethora of color and activity from the splendor of seasonal changes. Blackwood documents such ephemeral moments by creating ambiguous fragments of vivid color fields, geometric abstractions, and flattened motifs, capturing great detail within the elements that would otherwise remain unnoticed.
Coaxing painterly expression from a documentary device, Blackwood’s photographs reframe segments of air, ice and water into vivid color fields, geometric abstractions and flattened motifs. By removing perspective and context, her unmodified images seize ephemeral moments within everyday occurrences and heighten them into foreign, unfamiliar pictures. A screenwriter and producer, Blackwood is a principal partner of Magnolia Mae Films. Among the films produced by Magnolia Mae are The Duchess (2008), The Invisible Woman (2013) and Philomena (2013). Blackwood began exhibiting her photography in the last ten years.
