Carmen Winant

–Photographs have the power to emit and withhold interior feeling like nothing else.⁠

–Who are you? ⁠

I am an artist, a mother, a professor of art, a person with a consciousness.⁠

–What do you do? ⁠

I work to find and compound existing photographs, weaving them into new pictorial and political contexts and narratives as installation.⁠

–Why photography? ⁠

I have always been moved by photography; there has always been a deep attraction. For me, photographs have the power to emit and withhold interior feeling like nothing else.⁠
