RMG Exposed Picks – Carla Sinclair

Carla Sinclair is the RMG’s Manager of Community and Volunteer Development. Her favorite works are typically photojournalistic and landscape pieces. She is drawn to fleeting moments of emotion or haunting landscapes captured through the lens.

Carla’s top picks for RMG Exposed are:


Jeffrey Gardner – Snow Horse: When I look at this magical piece I feel like I have been transported. I can almost feel the cool, sharp air filling my nose and lungs while the silent flakes cascade softly to the ground. The run-down home appears to spread its wings, beautifully framed by the warm sun, solitary horse and snow covered forest.


Natalie Austin – The Fisherman: This piece is pure nostalgia for me as my grandfather used to wear a similar, wide brimmed hat as he taught me how to fish. Front and centre in the foreground, I imagine the unspoken moments shared between the two fishermen. Shot from above, the negative space reveals only water leaving the context of the image to the imagination of the viewer.


Jeremy Waud – Killarney Night: The elusive night sky can be a challenge to photograph, however Jeremy captures the brilliance of this scene to perfection. The velvety gradient of the setting sun reflected across the glassy water balances the piece while doubling up on the majesty of the landscape.
