Alison Overton is a fine-art photographer who blends the qualities of photography and painting in her moody, gothic landscapes. Using cameras as simple as the toy-like Holga and transparent oils, she transforms her photographs into something more than a document of a scene. A native of North Carolina , she was been awarded Regional Artists Project Grants for 2000-2001 and 2003-2004 from the North Carolina Arts Council. Her work has been exhibited in New York City, Colorado, West Virginia, South Carolina, Virginia and in over 75 exhibits in North Carolina. You can discover her work by visiting her website. Alison recommends the work of Alan Dehmer.For streaming audio click here or subscribe to the podcast for free viaBook Recommendation: Early Twentieth Century Hand-painted Photography by Michael Ivankovich.
