Carol Colby Tanenbaum believes photography offers the viewer the
opportunity to see through the eyes of another. By taking subjects out of context,
and by changing their color and/or perspective, Carol hopes to bring the viewer’s eye to the
sensuality and complexity of objects usually rejected as forms of decay and degradation. www.colbytanenbaum.com
