Carolyn Brown began photographing ancient architecture while living in Cairo, Egypt, where she did graduate work in art history at the American University of Cairo.  Later traveled throughout Mexico, photographing pre-Hispanic and Vice Regal architecture, nature, and people.  Presently, she is an architectural and fine arts photographer in Dallas, Texas, specializing in preservation projects, flowers, landscapes, and ancient sites.  She has done six books—either in part or the whole book on Dallas.  The new Dallas Book is complimented by several essayists who tell their personal stories about living and working in Dallas.  It was printed by TCU Press.

Brown’s presentation will review past books and show a few works and words from each chapter of the book.  Calvert Collins Bratton will read quotes from the women’s essays, and Willis Cecil Winters will read quotes from the men’s essays.

Her work is regularly shown at Craighead Green Gallery, Dallas, TX, and the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History at the Dallas Museum of Art and the University of Texas at Dallas.  Her archives are promised to the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History upon her death.
