Amy Carr is an event photojournalist and travel & cultural documentary photographer based in San Francisco.  When she is not chasing the light on location, she strives to capture the dignity in communities living in hardship, displaced and/or living in poverty.  She is an Instructor of Photography at the Academy of Art University where she has taught her craft to over 600 graduate students from all over the world since 2004.  Amy’s photographic career has taken her through flooding thoroughfares in Bombay to the arid deserts of Rajasthan on camelback   She has trekked over treacherous passes with nomadic horsemen in the Himalayas and dived deep into the Bali Sea to explore the USS Liberty wreckage.  She has lived extensively in Japan, India & Europe and has explored over 20 countries with camera in hand.  Her thirst for adventure combined with a love for humanity has inspired countless striking images aimed to preserve the hope and dignity of the people and cultures she encounters. Her mission is to promote self-awareness, tolerance, inter-cultural dialogue and respect for diversity and as Kofi Anon said, “{these} are more essential than ever in a world where people are becoming more and more closely interconnected.”
