Up photography, urban

PFR

lookup photoart altered images go beyond the capture subjectively objective


To protect strangers on city streets from cameras, photographer Jessie Carveth leans back and looks up.

That started in 2013. When she moved back to the city after 25 years, she also needed to protect strangers from having to see her 25 years older.

It was startling to realize that she had never looked up. In her city kid fantasy she’s a visual expert of every angle in all her cities.

Lookup photography led to other photography interests–from above, city, historic preservation, photo art, architecture, urban geometry, variations photography, and a compulsion to stop every few steps, inside or out, to stare.

Formerly Olympus film, Canon, and Sony, she was happy to surrender, at least temporarily, to phone camera.

  1. I too have found beauty in up photography. Different vantage points in our pictures help open a whole new world for those who only look down To their feet or where they are going. Lovely work.
