Carrie is an amateur photographer who loves watching basketball and admiring basketball players. She is also an amateur pole dancer. She likes to play the lottery and to try other games of chance. She also enjoys horseback riding, mostly because she likes tight-fitting riding pants.
“What I love about amateur photography is the chance to catch a moment in time and preserve it forever,” she says. “I love that no matter where you go, there are these beautiful moments just waiting to be frozen forever. It could be something in nature. It could be a sunset or a sunrise. It could be a couple in love, kissing each other. It could be something funny, or interesting, or even something tragic. When you think of some of the award winning photographs down through the years, what some of them showed you was pretty horrible. But they won awards because of their powerful content. Those photos made you feel something, and that was why we remembered them, and that’s why they became famous. I think a well done photograph is a testament not just to the technology that captured it, but to the eye of the person who thought to take it just then. These days, with filters that can make any picture look like it was artistic and professionally shot, with automatic everything on digital machines that practically dress you in the morning, it’s easier than ever to take a competent photo, a photo that clearly depicts what you shot. But even if you had technology that could perfectly capture what the human eye can see, not to mention distorting it through artistic filters, you still wouldn’t be able to replace human beings in the process. A human being still has to look at that photograph and say, ‘Yes, this is the right view. This is the image I want to capture forever.’ I guess what I like most about photography is you have that interaction between people and technology and the two can never be separated. I know there is this debate among people who think photography is art, and artists who think photography can never be art because a machine is doing some of the work. I think dismissing good photography is a terrible mistake. Somebody has to be able to capture our world as it is, in that fleeting moment when a photograph is taken. And so many great paintings rely on photographs to capture that moment of time before they are then interpreted. That’s what a lot of artists never quite get around to telling you.”
Pole dancing is something that Carrie also has strong feelings about. “To me, you are never more wide awake, never more in your moment and in your body, than when you are on that pole,” she says. “I think to be the center of attention is both a curse and a benefit. It is a curse because you can’t leave the spotlight once it’s on you without making a fool of yourself. When everybody’s watching you, you need to do your thing and you need to make sure you impress the people watching. But that’s a lot of pressure. It’s sink or swim. You’ve got to succeed or fail. Then there’s the fact that being the center of attention is a wonderful gift at the same time. When all eyes are on you, you can finally get the attention you believe you deserve as a woman. How often in life are we really the center of attention? It doesn’t actually happen nearly as often as we might like it to, yet everybody wants to feel like they are important. When a girl gets a taste of what it’s like to be on that pole, to have every guy watching her, to have all that desire directed at her. Can you imagine what it must be like to know that every single pair of eyes on you belongs to someone who is looking at every inch of your body, who wants to be able to touch you, who desires you more than anything else in the world at that moment? It’s an intoxicating feeling of power.”
Carrie enjoys games of chance because she likes the idea that the things we take for granted in life can change in an instant. “I want to know when I wake up every day that there is a chance, no matter how small, that everything I know could change,” she says. “I love the feeling of potential that comes with playing the lottery. No, there isn’t much chance you’ll win. But it’s possible. In a heartbeat, in a second, in the time it takes to scratch off a ticket, everything about your life and what you have always taken for granted could completely change like that.”
