Episode 44: Elinor Carucci, Dunkirk, Excerpts

Born 1971 in Jerusalem, today's guest Elinor Carucci graduated in 1995 from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design with a degree in photography, and moved to New York that same year. In a relatively short amount of time, her work has been included in an impressive amount of solo and group exhibitions worldwide, solo shows include Edwynn Houk gallery, Fifty One Fine Art Gallery, James Hyman and Gagosian Gallery, London among others and group show include The Museum of Modern Art New York and The Photographers' Gallery, London.  Her photographs are included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art New York, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Houston Museum of Fine Art, among others and her work appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Details, New York Magazine, W, Aperture, ARTnews and many more publications.

An unconventional episode due to being a bit busier than usual, but some great episodes are on the horizon.  Israeli-American Elinor Carucci is one of my favorite photographers. S he uses her art to stay connected to her family, herself, and anyone that crosses her path. She's lived quite a life and though our conversation is short & sweet, her insights into the creative arts world must be heard and embraced.  You'll be just as charmed by her life story as I was!

After our 20-minute talk, I briefly review Christopher Nolan's WWII spectacle DUNKIRK, then play some other interview excerpts from recent podcasts that I have loved as of late.  All of which are available on the Now Playing Network of course.  Highlights include former guests Bill Ackerman, Patrick Ripoll as well as Brian Saur, Elric Kane & Jim Hanke, doing tremendous work with some interviews and episodes I hope you'll check out immediately!
