former photographer class of 2016
Carly Richardson is a senior photographer for The Green and White from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She quickly fell in love with photography after taking an introductory course her freshman year of high school. Since then, she has been exploring digital, film, documentary, and surrealist photography. Carly is one of those strange people who finds pleasure in waking up early in the morning to get work done. It is not unusual, therefore, to find her at Caribou Coffee at seven in the morning, working on college applications or editing photographs while jamming out to Spotify commercials because she spends all of her extra money on coffee, her one true love. If she’s not at Caribou Coffee, Carly is most likely roaming Franklin Street or Carrboro for food and music. The key to her heart is through cats, Netflix, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. At this very moment, Carly is most likely wearing a dress because she loathes pants. Her all-time favorite song is “Fluorescent Adolescent” by the Arctic Monkeys, and her least favorite vegetable is the bell pepper because the seeds scare her. If Carly could see any band in concert, it would be Weezer, Blink-182, the Black Keys, or the Red Hot Chili Peppers, because choosing one is just too hard. In the next thirty years, Carly hopes to get over one hundred stamps in her passport, live in New York City, show work in a museum, and have a job that never ceases to make her smile.
