About the Photographer
Carla Shapiro is a photographer based in upstate New York. In the series titled Charlotte, Shapiro photographs her grandmother, who has Alzheimer's disease, as she helps care for her. An intimate set of informal portraits, the series revolves around simple moments and, in the artist's words, "the aging landscape of Charlotte's body." Shapiro completed a BFA at Syracuse University in 1978. She has taught photography at Pratt Institute and Pace University, both in New York, as well as other schools.
