I admired Carrie Beth Waghorn's work for nearly a year before one of us reached out to the other to grab coffee. I don't remember who got in touch with who, but I do remember instantly liking her even more than I already loved her artwork.
Carrie Beth is a self-taught, Charleston-based artist specializing in monochromatic renderings of the female form. She describes her own work as raw and expressive, always looking for the intersection of female beauty and vulnerability.
She is smart, passionate, and beautiful inside and out. When Carrie Beth asked me if I would be willing to take some portraits of her, I couldn't have been more excited. Rather than simply take a headshot, I wanted to capture her in a way that reflected her work, utilizing the female form as well as ink, her primary medium.
These are some of the photos from that project. Learn more about CBW at carriebethwaghorn.com.
