ILFORD Master Elinor Carucci is an Israeli born photographer living and working in New York City with her family. Her fine art photography of the most intimate moments of her family’s life has been shown in galleries all over the world and garnered many awards. Elinor has the uncanny ability to record split seconds of time that speak to us about the human condition. Her photos evoke emotion, they disturb, they explain, and they confuse. While seemingly recording mundane slices of life her work speaks to us about the human condition and most especially about what it means to be in relationship with others.
Her new book “Mother“will publish in 2014 chronicling her and her children’s lives from her pregnancy through the first nine years of her twins lives. ” I have been photographing my children, Eden and Emmanuelle since I got pregnant in 2003,” she says. “I photograph as a mother, from a mother’s point of view, showing the different aspects of motherhood as I see it, the beautiful and the ugly, the magic and the frustration, the extremes that live side by side when you are a mother. I try to photograph them all.”
In this short video in the series Print is Not Dead, Peter Berberian and Ryan Speth of Gotham Imaging talk about creating a relationship with Elinor that allowed them to print a major show for her in New York. Elinor fell in love with ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Gold Fibre Silk and uses it exclusively for her fine art printing.
