My project comes from a place of intuition. I like to wander and observe the small moments in daily life. I would call myself a street photographer without “the street”. During this unprecedented year, I found myself often alone in rural NH observing a new environment. I discovered the graphic and abstract images in these new surroundings. I also noticed that here, things appear to be used and then revived and used again. There is beauty, reflection, and nostalgia contained within these items. I found myself looking at old cars that were not “show pieces” but still functioning and useful objects. Aging genuinely yet gracefully is wonderful to observe and capture!
Kathleen DeCarlo-Plano has been interested in photography for several years and started shooting in 2014. Kathleen is currently based outside the beautiful city of Boston but has recently split her time between Boston and the rural areas of New Hampshire. Her photographic foundation is rooted in uncovering the images that capture the beauty and spontaneity of daily life. She finds inspiration in observing, interpreting, and photographing people and/or objects, their relationship to one another and their environment.
Her work was exhibited at the Griffin Museum of Photography in the spring of 2020 and again in 2021. DeCarlo-Plano has studied at the New England School of Photography and the Griffin Museum.
