Minh Carrico, “Celebration”, 2004, digital pigment print.
Minh’s color photographic images represent two societies, two worlds that make up his identity: a white southern community in Little Rock, Arkansas where grew up during the 1970’s, and Vietnamese culture through his mother, and his own travels. In many ways Minh still feels an outsider of both Western society and Viet Nam.
In 2002, Minh began surveying daily life of his remaining relatives in Viet Nam, and more recently he traveled back to Arkansas to captured forgotten memories and instances.
Minh is a professor of design and photography and co-chair of the Visual Arts Department at Edmonds Community College. His nearly 20 years of experience in the field has led to his passion for teaching the future generations of visual communicators. Outside the classroom, Minh works on a number of fine art photography projects and mix-media installations that address personal and social identity.
His visual art has been exhibited and published internationally.
