Background

Carley Rudd is a nomadic travel photographer working in LA, NYC and around the world. A creative soul from the beginning, she was raised by two artists in Maine, where she developed a connection to nature and appreciation for natural beauty. She is a self taught photographer and her breezy photographic style lends itself perfectly to travel photography that evokes a feeling of blissful escapism. Her work has been featured in CN Traveller, Travel + Leisure, Afar, Suitcase Magazine, Tiny Atlas Quarterly, and more. She was recently voted one of the top travel Instagram accounts to follow by Condé Nast Traveller.

Statement

Photography is an exploration for me, a way to see the world and capture the beauty in life’s fleeting moments. I am drawn to clean, minimalistic compositions and soft, subtle hues. There is a sense of quietude and stillness that my work embodies, letting our minds drift elsewhere. Blissful escapism. From remote islands in Indonesia, to palm-filled shorelines in Mozambique and snow-covered peaks in Wyoming, my photography is the utmost passionate expression of my true being as a visual explorer and curious adventurer.
