// about kandi

I take pictures and make things. I was born and raised in Baton Rouge and have made a happy life in Memphis with my husband and our fast little dog Rocket.  In my free time I enjoy cooking, knitting and crocheting, painting, bowling, reading, practicing the ukulele, and going on adventures.  I wanted to be a photographer when I was 8-years-old. I got my first camera when I was 10… I haven’t stopped since.

I’ve had work printed in various publications- from album art to books and magazines. I’ve shown work at a few exhibitions around the US, including group shows at Needles & Pens gallery in San Francisco, Crosstown Arts in Memphis, and the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art. I have a couple of photographs on permanent display which can be spotted at the Hi Tone in Memphis and IU Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis.

While I enjoyed working as a freelance photographer over the past decade or so, at the moment I am not available for hire.

I’m on the ‘gram @kandicook, and I’ll be commemorating 15 years behind the camera with a 365 project launching in 2018: A Year of Photography.
