Biography

Cari Faye Antonovich in a photographer living in central Wyoming. She was born in 1992 and homeschooled until she attended college at the age of 15. Inspired by her own experiences and her things around her, she began taking self-portraits under the guide of her professor Mr. Keogh. After graduating, she opened her first portrait studio in downtown Casper, and hasn't stopped taking photographs since.



Work

Antonovich's work is highly influenced by music. She explores ideas of surrealism in portraiture, based on lyrics that she connects with. She was formally taught film in college, but her digital work is entirely self taught. Her style is characterized by artful storytelling themes, that are unique and hauntingly beautiful.
