All My Lies Are True is a refreshing reminder that somewhere wanders the obscure photographer, creating images of the mundane and absurd. Carol’s new title showcases the beauty that allows photography to be the means of an adventure born of travel, humor, and intelligence – a journey that ceases to end once the shutter is released, but rather continues to develop into a diary of genuine and often humorous photographs.
The book begins ‘A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving,’ a quotation from Lao Tzu appropriately juxtaposed with an image of a picturesque landscape, a Costa Rican mountain in the distance… accompanied by a statue of a rather large farm animal’s derriere in the foreground. This is the photograph of a well-seasoned traveler, and by God is it a beautiful print!
