Claudia Olson has worked with photography since 1980, while also pursuing careers in other art forms such as horticulture and, presently, acupuncture. Her recent interest in the barns of Carroll and Frederick counties has produced a body of work, simply titled "Barns".
"I have always been fascinated with old barns and the
juxtaposition of that which is man-made with that which is weather worn. I find true beauty in the result of this match and decided to start examining it closer with my camera. The outcome is a collection of photos, from wide images to close-up details of some of the oldest barns in the county.”
