COLORS ARE MOODS BY CARLYN PORTER 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 07

If I don’t get it on camera I feel like it never happened, Carlyn Porter says. 

“To some it might seem that my obsession with getting it captured on camera takes away from living the experience, but to me everything looks better through the viewfinder.”

Carlyn took our cover picture this issue. It’s one of 35,000 pictures on her computer.

“My favourite photographs usually come from when I’m out exploring, like when I came upon that old car abandoned in the woods.

“I like to take people to places they don’t normally see, sometimes in unusual locations and sometimes in macro.”

Aged 17, Carlyn is something of a child prodigy. “This worries me a little, since I’m inevitably getting older.

“I’m definitely growing as an artist though, when I go through old pictures I can see how much my technique has improved and my style has become more refined.”

Carlyn has never used film. She is one of the new generation of photographers who have only taken digital pictures...
