Carol Fondé’s photographs represent a transcendental view of nature. Her passion for capturing an ethereal moment is evident throughout these images. Carol’s photographs of the Atlantic Ocean are meditative and moody while maintaining an expansive view of where both water and sky come together in one single and sometimes surreal instant with the extraordinarily subtle colors of sand, water, and sunset.
Carol Fondé grew up in Long Island, New York and began photographing the land and seascape at the age of seven with a Brownie camera. She graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology and went on to receive The Ford Foundation Fellowship for Visual Arts which led her to pursue her Master of Fine Arts in photography. Carol works as a photographer in New York City and is a master color printer, as she is also internationally recognized for her expertise in the field of archival color reproduction. She has printed for many celebrated photographers such as Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Davidson, Steve Klein, Hiro, and many others. She went on to teach at a number of acclaimed programs such as The Cooper Union School of Art, The International Center of Photography, The School of Visual Arts, The Main Photographic Workshops, and Parsons School of Design.
Carol Fondé’s fine art photography has been shown in numerous museums and galleries over time, including but not limited to, The Heckscher Museum, The Neuberger Museum, Westwood Gallery, NYC, Woodstock Center of Photography, and Sotheby’s.
