3.18 – Caroline Tompkins


In this episode, we are joined by photographer and photo editor Caroline Tompkins to discuss her latest body of work on swimmers in Ohio, going viral for her catcalling project Hey Baby, inhabiting the hyper-masculine culture of truckers, finding fulfillment working as a photo editor, zine making, gender equality in the photo world, and a slew of diverse and interesting books. We think she set the record for bringing the most photobooks!

A native of Cincinnati, OH, Caroline Tompkins received a BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in NYC. Her work has been featured in the Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, aCurator, Al Jazeera America, Lenscratch, Dazed, and others. She currently lives in Brooklyn, working as a freelance photographer, photo editor at Bloomberg Businessweek, and zine maker at Girl Pains.
