Photographer #269: Carrie Levy

Carrie Levy, 1979, USA, studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York and later received an MFA from the Royal College of Art in London. At a young age she released her book 51 Months. 51 months was the length of the prison sentence her father received when Carrie was sixteen, during this period she started photographing her life and the effects of her fathers incarceration. Her photography evolved and became more and more conceptual, however the experience of her father's incarceration keeps coming back in her projects. Her series Untitled was still based upon the stories of her father. In her latest series she has photographed men in submissive, vulnerable and passive role. She shows us that females can as well objectify the male body. Carrie has exhibited her work extensively troughout the world. The following images come from the series You Before All, Impaired and Untitled.
