Carole Evans has a BA(Hons) in French Studies, and an MA in Photographic Studies. She is a photographic artist, cultural organizer, and educator.
As a photographer and researcher, Carole is interested in memory and how photography can be used to evoke and (re) construct memory. Themes of heritage, nostalgia, and community are recurrent in her practice. Her most recent work is concerned with First World War stories, and using photography to re-present them to contemporary audiences. The process of making the image is an important part of the work, and her work often includes alternative photographic processes such as wet plate collodion and cyanotypes as a narrative tool.
After seven years of working as Gallery Coordinator at Photofusion in Brixton, Carole continuously explores alternative ways of showing work outside the white walled gallery space, be it through her practice or in other curatorial ways. In 2011, she co-founded of Portrait Salon, a salon de refusés of images which have been rejected from the Taylor Wessing Prize organised by the National Portrait Gallery. In 2013 she devised and curated the Altrincham Arts Festival, a pop-up arts festival turning empty shops into temporary art galleries.
