Represented in the book "Women Photographers at National Geographic", photojournalist Carole Devillers took several of these images while on assignment for National Geographic, or for Reuters News Pictures as their news photographer in Haiti. Her keen interest for the world's ethnic diversity and her spirit of adventure have led her to live in West Africa, French Guiana and Haiti, where she has shared and documented people's lives, learning to unlearn to be open to new ways, other visions. While based in the Sahel in Burkina Faso she had her own hut and camel. Then she spent four months with the Wayana Indians, on a solo expedition in the Amazonian forest. In Haiti, she joined the voodooists on their annual purification pilgrimages, and photographed the political unrest and street battles in Port-au-Prince, during which she was shot at, held at gunpoint and had film confiscated. She has also traveled to Japan and goes regularly to India on a spiritual journey and to lead photo tours.



Through her photography she wishes to create a bond of understanding between people of different cultures and races. "The human exchange, the interaction that takes place between the photographer and the subject is very important to me. And I am happy when the final result can touch and inspire the viewer. When I look back on the various ethnic groups that have accepted me in their midst as a photographer, I feel most grateful to them for their hospitality and their trust in me."



In her 35-year photographic career her many clients have included The New York Times and The Washington Post, The World Wildlife Fund, The Cousteau Society, Jeune Afrique, Bunte, Sygma, Associated Press, ORSTOM, and international development agencies such as UNICEF, UNDP, USAID, CARE, the World Bank and WHO. Devillers also writes to produce text/photos packages and photo books for children. Relocating to New Mexico in 2000, she spent 10 years there before settling in Fort Lauderdale FL to be closer to Haiti where she goes regularly. Taking up caving she co-created a program of exploration, promotion and preservation of the caves of Haiti which she documents through photography.

She is available for assignments locally or to any part of the world.



For the past 8 years Carole has also been leading her own small-group photo expeditions abroad, designed especially for photography. Through these photo tours photographers of all levels get to sharpen their photographic skills and learn how to see and capture the spirit of a place, while enjoying adventure travel.



Carole is a member of the National Speleological Society and her work is represented in books and private and international collections.
