I saw Caroline’s impactful storytelling through her entry to the Houston Center for Photography’s 2017 Fellowship awards. Using spoken word, video and photography, her work packs a powerful and timely punch as it reflects and extrapolates on current events. Her work has been shown at “filmpoem” and underground film festivals in Europe and the US this year.
