Carolyn Benedict Fraser is a photographer and educator based in Nashville, Tennessee. Her work utilizes the constraints of the camera, the frame, and vision to address the ways in which we orient ourselves to mental and physical limitations. She studied psychology and photography at Mills College in Oakland, California, and received an MFA in Visual Art from Cornell University. She presented her work at the 2017 SPE North Eastern Conference, Is Photography Enough?: Interdisciplinary Approaches Beyond the Still Image. In 2020, she joined a San Francisco-based artist collective that is in the process of creating a body of work that responds to the unstable nature of photographic processes. In recent years, her work has been included in exhibitions at Site:Brooklyn in Brooklyn, New York, Washington State University, the Millepiani Gallery in Rome, Italy, and the Medium Photo's 2023 Size Matters exhibition in San Diego.
