Carolina Mariana Rodríguez is a Mexican American artist based in Chicago. Her photography practice was influenced at a young age by a stack of B&W photos her father took during his youth in Merida, Mexico. Carolina’s interest in ordinary musings has created a personal body of work comprised of emotive and often ambiguous moments. Focusing on light, shape and the exploration of her environment through everyday objects and occasions— the viewer is aware of Carolina’s presence through photos that sense she is directly experiencing them.
These qualities take shape in Carolina’s commercial work where she strives for relaxed and honest imagery with interesting elements woven throughout.
She studied Fine Arts and Psychology at the University of Kansas. Her interest in international travel has led her to photo opportunities in Colombia, China, Greece, Mexico and Morocco.
