Carole Evans is a photographic artist interested in local stories. She sees art as a means of engaging with communities and uses the powerful visual language and demographic nature of photography to recount minor histories to contemporary audiences, often exhibiting in real-life, accessible spaces. She has a keen interest in the craft of photography, using alternative photographic processes and analog methods in order to contribute to her narrative.
Carole has been teaching in some form or another for 15 years; she is currently Acting Course Leader in Contextual Studies at Ravensbourne University London and is Dissertation Supervisor for the Photography BA (Hons) at University of the Creative Arts Farnham, where she also contributes to the Theory Lecture program. She is visiting lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University (Cambridge).
In 2011, she co-founded of Portrait Salon, a salon de refusés of images which have been rejected from the Taylor Wessing Prize organised by the National Portrait Gallery. In 2013 she devised and curated the Altrincham Arts Festival, a pop-up arts festival turning empty shops into temporary art galleries.
