Kathleen T. Carr is a fine art photographer, author and teacher. She received her B.F.A. (cum laude) in Photography from Ohio University in 1970. She then studied photography with Minor White at his home in Arlington, Massachusetts. Minor's work had a strong influence on Kathleen's visual perception and approach to photography. She subsequently worked for Aperture, a fine photography quarterly and book publisher. After spending seven years at the Findhorn Community in Scotland, creating audio-visual programs, multi-media shows, publicity materials and books, Kathleen was staff photographer for the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. She started and owns Carr Classics, a fine photography card company that showcases her Big Sur photography.

Kathleen's photographs have been published internationally in numerous books and periodicals, including PhotoVision (featured artist), American Art Collector, Outdoor Photographer (featured artist), National Geographic Traveler, Islands, Esquire, and Decor (featured artist). Several galleries and private dealers represent her work.

Her books include Polaroid Manipulations: A Complete Visual Guide to Creating SX-70, Transfer, and Digital Prints, Polaroid Transfers: A Complete Visual Guide to Creating Image and Emulsion Transfers (Amphoto Books), and To Honor the Earth (with Dorothy Maclean, HarperSanFrancisco).

Kathleen has been leading photography workshops since 1984 on topics including beginning photography, Polaroid and digital transfers, beginning Photoshop for photographers, and digital Infrared. In addition to teaching for BetterPhoto, she offers one to seven day workshops and private sessions in Hawaii, Montana, California and other locals.
