Carolyn Drake

Based in Vallejo, California since 2014, Carolyn Drake is the recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship, the Lange Taylor Prize, a Fulbright fellowship, and the Anamorphosis prize, among other awards. She joined Magnum Photos as a nominee in 2015. She is currently making work in the US and Ukraine. She studied Media/Culture and History in the 1990s at Brown University, where she became interested in the ways that history and reality are purposefully shaped and revised over time, and in the ways that artists can interrupt and shift these narratives.
