“On Carrie Levy’s sixteen birthday her father was sentenced to four years in prison. Lost in a new world of furtive whispers at school and emptiness at home she immersed herself in photography. Desolate New York suburban landscapes, a bare bed, her unkempt garden, all echo her loss documented in 51 Months, a visual diary of her father’s absence. Her father, now out of prison, continues to fuel her work: in her new series recognizing the restrictions involved in documenting her surroundings, Levy, now studying at London’s RCA, creates conceptual photographs loosely based on stories of her father’s time in prison: “the only distinguishable person in this work is my father.”
