Carrie Schneider's photographs and videos are deliberatively ambiguous narratives that mine the complexities of relationships - both romantic and familial.
"The hand takes on a personality of its own in Carrie Schneider's photographs and videos. Whether grasping or groping, caressing or scrubbing...the hand conveys a desire for connection..." Claudine Ise, writer
