Cari, you have one of the most unique streams on flickr. and along with that, you are just a beautiful person in general. you're not afraid of being yourself. the honesty in every photograph you post blows me away. there are so many things in life that a lot of people overlook because we don’t want to be reminded they exist, like dead animals or how sad the inside of an abandoned house can appear. you make people look. you make people see the truth of these things. and that is such an incredible thing to do.

Cari Your creativity knows no bounds. Your work is a constant source of amazment. And in some cases a source of nervousness, because some of your shots look a little dangerous. Every new post raises the bar for us all. It inspires us to push the envelope. You are a credit to the Flickr community.

Contrast is emotion, and there is so much emotional contrast between the decayed world that is the setting, and the incredible almost ethereal beauty of the protagonist in these photos.

Contrast is emotion, and there is so much emotional contrast between the decayed world that is the setting, and the incredible almost ethereal beauty of the protagonist in these photos. I feel like we are being taken on a journey by an angel, visiting the dead, yet separated from them both by stunning life force, and a sublime detachment. I think these are some of the most beautiful images I've seen on flickr in a long time. I wish there were books of these images to buy and give to friends. Thank you for this work. It's truly inspiring.

Around 2009ish, I knew absolutely nothing about photography and decided to browse Flickr on a whim. I came across a thumbnail of one of your photos, clicked on it, and fell in love with your pictures. They're so beautiful in this quiet, lonely way. I felt so much when I saw your photos and I'm not sure how else to put it. They gave me this really strong desire to try to take my own pictures, and now I love photography! Your photos have had such an effect on me. Although we've never met, you have truly inspired me.

i've been flickr stalking you for about a year now haha, and with every upload you just seem to get better and better. you always seem to know how to make your pictures so intriguing and exciting and i find myself being unable to stop favouriting your pictures. you're such an inspiration, there's something about your pictures that are so real and not contrived, or overly posed, and as well as a natural behind the camera you seem to be a natural in front of it- your self portraits are literally amazing and i don't know how you manage it, when i try they never look right! okay i'll stop sucking up to you now, but thank you so much for sharing your photography with the world and please continue to upload til the end of time :) love, shannon x

I love how "one of a kind" and special your photos are, and the atmosphere you create in all of them, I love the amazing places you manage to find and the fact you're brave enough to go into them and make them into crazily good photography locations, I love the fact you're such a unique person and you always seem to be exactly who you are, and be proud of that fact. It's so inspiring ♥ sorry for the long, long ramble...thanks for favouriting my photo as well :) I appreciate it a lot. xxx

I know you already have a ton of testimonials, but I really felt like you deserve another! Your photos never fail to inspire me, and I even show them to my family and go, "look how cool these are!" I don't understand how you constantly find such amazing and breath taking locations and manage to capture them in the most beautifully haunting way. I'll find a picture you took stuck in my head for days, and that's when you know you really did well. Your pictures are real and imaginative and so inspiring. I can honestly say you're one of my favorite photographers for so many reasons, and I never get bored of looking at your work! I'm usually a tough critic when looking at other people's photography, but I can never find anything I don't like about yours. Don't ever stop taking pictures...you have so much to offer. :)

Theres something unique and beautiful about your photography that manages to move anyone that views it. Every single image manages to capture something out of a fairytale and you, are the beautiful, unique and innovative fairy. Your simply one of the most beautiful girls i've ever seen, i'm really interested in the effect media has had on girls. To feel like they cannot be individual, but you pair your photography, individual clothes and huge blonde hair and its really a magical sight. This may never be read but i just wanted to tell you what a huge influence; not only photography related but also creativity related you've had on me. I'm new to photography; but hell. I can tell your gonna be huge. Keep taking pictures ;) Eliijah x
