Caroline Japal is a photographer, art director and producer based in Birmingham, AL, where she was born and raised. She is currently getting her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and Painting at the University of Alabama. Because of her varied interest Caroline finds herself trying a little of everything from printmaking and painting to styling and directing. She has been interested in art since she was young but only found her love for producing and directing in college. This has led her to creating her own arts magazine, Art Concept Magazine, and to pursue a career in art directing. To Caroline, photography is a way of capturing personal memories. She uses photography as a way to document the people around her, and also to create her own stories by directing. Caroline believes portraits are extremely personal and, through taking them, she is able to give a glimpse into her subjects life for the viewer to experience.
