Carole J. Amodeo
Carole began her photography career in 1997. She is a member of Women Sharing Art, Inc., Patchogue Arts Council, South Bay Art Association, and East End Arts Council. Although not formally trained, she has exhibited throughout Long Island and has been honored to show in juried competitions, including a solo show that topped gallery record sales. Her work exudes a passion for vibrant color, whimsy, and the magic of reflections. Carole uses a “point and shoot” digital camera and feels the simplicity of her process is a defining element of her work.
After taking photos for close to 20 years, Carole finally found her niche. In 1997 she took two shots of Bergdorf Goodman’s Holiday Windows and her “NY REFLECTIONS SERIES” was born. In 2013 she circled back to work on that city series. She decided to get a tad closer to home taking her “Patchogue Reflections Series”. It took her five shoots to find the magic-mission accomplished. She then took her series to Babylon, thus, the Babylon Reflections. Stay tuned, much more on the horizon.
Carole says, “I want my work to speak to people like the initial image spoke to me. It is important for me to hold on to childhood beauty and the wonder of life.”
