Brigitte Carnochan’s photographs are collected worldwide. In this video she discusses what drives her photographic choices, how her major portfolios take shape, and her techniques—from hand painted gelatin silver prints, computer collages, printing on handmade papers, to platinum prints. Her most recent book, published by Hudson Hills Press with the images from her Floating World series is available from Verve Gallery, Santa Fe: vervegallery.com/_router.php?b=book-151. The book contains both her photographs as well as her own translation of the poems written by Japanese women of the 7th-20th centuries that inspired the images. Two earlier books were published in 2006: Bella Figura: Painted Photographs by Brigitte Carnochan by Modernbook Editions and The Shining Path, a limited edition monograph with eleven original gelatin silver photographs, by 21st Publications. Imagining Then: A Family Story, 1941-47 has been published by the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel to accompany the 2012 exhibition of that work: magcloud.com/browse/issue/387946. A Hasselblad Master Photographer in 2003, Carnochan has been featured on the covers of Lenswork, Camera Arts and Silvershotz magazines and also in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, AfterCapture, Black & White US & UK, Color, Hasselblad, View Camera, Polaroid, Fotoritim, Rangefinder and Zoom, among others.
