Carla Williams is a writer and photographer. Although she no longer has time to take pictures, she does write a lot about photography. So far she has co-written two books on the history of photography, as well as numerous articles and essays about photography, art, and culture. In 2002 she was a Rockefeller Fellow in the Humanities at Stanford University, where she worked on a biographical writing project about Maudelle Bass, an artist's model and dancer from the 1930s through the 1950s. Uniting her love of photographs, research, and history, Carla has created a family tree website, with her older sister. Through it they have met many relatives they didn't even know existed! In her free time Carla loves to read mysteries and is thinking about creating a series of mysteries based on photographs. Her dream job is to be a ghost writer.
