Donna Carnahan, international photographer from Houston, Texas, specializes in Italian landscape photography. Since 2015, gaining inspiration from her love of Renaissance art in Florence, she has traveled extensively throughout 10+ regions of Italy. She has a passion for travel to remote and little known places where she photographically captures hidden gems of nature. Having studied the Italian language, culture, art and history, she is able to explore and record digitally, the majestic beauty found in landscapes, seascapes, vineyards, cliffs, caves, and architecture in a way that has been described as having a romantic vibe, beautifully composed with a three dimensional effect, and cleverly created to exhibit.
Her work was recently featured in Forbes, an American magazine. https://www.forbes.com/sites/ irenelevine/2020/11/07/9-unique-ways-to-display-your-travel-photos/
