About Carolyn Monastra :

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Carolyn Monastra’s earliest work with photography involved taking pictures of people on the street and imagining their stories. This attraction to story and image fueled her education: she received a BA in English Literature from Fordham University and an MFA in photography from The Yale School of Art. She has received awards from The Puffin Foundation, The English Speaking Union, BRIC, and The City of New Haven. Artist residencies include The Djerassi Foundation, Blue Mountain Center, and the Saltonstall Foundation. After a residency in Iceland she was inspired to begin The Witness Tree – a project documenting the effects of global climate change. To date, she has photographed in nineteen U.S. states, seventeen countries, and on every continent. In 2012, she was selected by The Climate Reality Project to become one of their Climate Leaders and has since given presentations about climate change to over a dozen audiences. Her work is in the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse of Miami and has been exhibited in venues in the US, China, Ireland, and England.
