Over the past 30 years, Carrie Mae Weems has worked toward developing a complex body of art that has employed photographs, text, fabric, audio, digital images, installation, and video. Her work has led her to investigate family relationships, gender roles, the histories of racism, sexism, class, and various political systems.

A Photographer's Life: 1990-2005
(released October 2006)
"I don't have two lives," Annie Leibovitz writes in the Introduction to this collection of her work from 1990-2005. "This is one life, and the personal pictures and the assignment work are all part of it." Annie chronicles the celebrations and heartbreaks of her large and robust family. NPR Interview -  All Things Considered, October 3, 2006.

WIPI Distinguished Photographer Award in collaboration w/the 1st Annual Lucie Awards, 2003

Annie is one of the most celebrated female photographers of our time. Countless books and exhibitions and publications. Search Google to see the scope and depth of her incredible work.

2005 Women In Photography International Distinguished Photographer
"My responsibility as an artist is to work, to sing for my supper, to make art, beautiful and powerful, that adds and reveals; to beautify the mess of a messy world, to heal the sick and feed the helpless; to shout bravely from the rooftops and storm barricaded doors and voice the specificity of our historical moment."

"The Louisiana Project"
a new work by the noted artist Carrie Mae Weems that was commissioned as part of the bicentennial celebrations surrounding the commemoration of the Louisiana Purchase.

In 2013 Weems received the MacArthur “Genius”
grant as well as the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2014 she received the BET Honors Visual Artist award, the Lucie Award for Fine Art photography and was one of 4 artists honored at the Guggenheim’s International Gala. contact: Jack Shainman Gallery/ New York, NY 1001

PETER E. PALMQUIST  (1936-2003)

"...Well, the real message is, that if you're passionate about anything, that's kinda what life's about. So, whatever your idea is, whatever you want to pursue, do it whole heartily and don't ever let anybody tell you, 'can't'...fine, you CAN do it." - Peter Palmquist

RUTH BERNHARD  (1905 - Dec. 18, 2006)
A beautiful, inspirational women and photographer
Wikipedia Encyclopedia       WIPI ARCHIVE Article 2003

"Light is my inspiration, my paint and brush. It is as vital as the model herself. Profoundly significant, it caresses the essential superlative curves and lines. Light I acknowledge as the energy upon which all life on this planet depends." - Ruth Bernhard

"You are a great inspiration"

RUTH BERNHARD, "Trees Walking" Santa Rosa, 1972

Born in Berlin on October 14, 1905, Ruth began her photographic career in 1928, one year after joining her artist father in New York City. She worked as a photographer's assistant for six months, and with $90 severance pay in her pocket, bought an 8x10 camera from a friend and struck out on her own. She was already an established commercial photographer in New York when her life took a dramatic turn in 1935, after a chance meeting with Edward Weston. "When I saw his work I was so deeply moved I cried. I hadn't realized there were photographers who were artists."  read more
