Carinthia West

Described as " the epitome of a true Renaissance woman" by Muse magazine, Carinthia traveled the world with her liberated art-loving parents, then later, in her own right, as a model, actress and photo-journalist in the late 1960's and 70's. From debutante to Chelsea girl, hippie to photo-journalist, both as observer and muse, hers is an unique perspective of candid shots of leading figures from the rock and theatre world. To date, her photographs have been shown internationally at exhibitions in America ( Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago) , and in the UK ( London, Birmingham and the prestigious Julia Margaret Cameron Dimbola Museum on the Isle of Wight,where she was brought up), Her photographs of the inflatable pig flying over Battersea Power Station are also currently circling the world in the Pink Floyd exhibition 'Their Mortal Remains'  which has just left the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and is now in Rome, to be shown in New York 2019.  

As Muse wrote,  she was a free spirit wandering within these inspiring times with her camera, blissfully unaware that she was candidly recording icons and iconic moments of the times"....

"I don't feel I was any different from anyone else of my generation who experienced the '60's and 70's. We were all in the dream together - rock 'n' roll music, lyrics, plus the visual arts, were the combined ingredients that defined the times", she comments, "I just happened to take a few more photographs than most, that's all", or as Ronnie Wood says, ‘Carinthia took photos while we were getting on with life”.
