Carey Averbook is a photographer and design thinker creating interactive multimedia works grounded in the transdisciplinary investigation of compelling social issues and personal narratives. A fluent Spanish speaker and facile interpreter of diverse cultures, I bring to life critical social and environmental issues challenging the US and Central and South America. My recent work dissects climate change impacts in the lives of Bolivian women, migrant sensibility and transnational bridges, and queer time. I have an M.A. in New Media Photojournalism from George Washington University's Corcoran School of Arts and Design and a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am based in Washington D.C. and travel extensively in Central and South America.
