Carey Averbook

My artistic medium consists of: photography, audio, and video such that I am a photographer, filmmaker, and multimedia producer. My practice is heavily rooted in anthropology, which I studied at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill as an undergraduate. I received my Master’s in New Media Photojournalism from George Washington University’s Corcoran School of Arts and Design in 2017. I splits my time between Bolivia and the D.C. area and my work focuses on social, cultural, and environmental issues in the Americas.

My work has been published in Vanishing Point Documentary Magazine, Upside Down World, Earthfirst! Newswire, The Global South Development Magazine, and The New Internationalist.
