Elinor Carucci (artist)
Elinor Carucci‘s photographs have consistently explored the types and levels of intimacy, focusing on her own body, her parents, her husband, and more recently, her children. Often photographing in close-range, Carucci relies on bits and pieces, expressions and symbols to communicate joy, pain, and the sometimes-elegiac sentiments that accompany relationships.
Born 1971 in Jerusalem, Elinor Carucci graduated in 1995 from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design with a degree in photography, and moved to New York in the same year. She was awarded the International Center of Photography's Infinity Award for Young Photographers in 2001 and a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2002. Carucci has had solo exhibitions at galleries including Edwynn Houk Gallery, Fifty One Fine Art Gallery and Gagosian Gallery, London. Her photographs are included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Brooklyn Museum of Art and Houston Museum of Fine Art, among others. She has published two monographs to date, Closer (Chronicle, 2002) and Diary of a Dancer (Steidl, 2005). Carucci is represented by James Hyman Gallery, London.
