While shooting for this project, I was continually amazed at the willingness of people to be present and available to the lens…their openness and generosity of spirit was inspiring to me as an artist and encouraging as a witness to humanity.
A lifelong artist and native South Carolinian, Caroline Jenkins received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Dance Theatre from The College of William and Mary in 1981. She subsequently moved to New York City where she was a professional actress for five years and then on to Los Angeles where she worked in film, television and commercial production.
It was during her years out west that she discovered her passion for photography and for finding ways to translate previously learned elements of movement, composition and light into her still images. She has worked as a full time corporate photographer and has freelanced from Key West to NYC. She finds photography to be an incredible process to explore and express the human condition.
Caroline lives in her hometown of Greenwood SC with her sweet husband Ralph, her amazing son Jones, her dogs Miki and Maggie, and a cat named Josh.
