Carolyne Weldon is a Montreal-based writer and photographer. Raised in the woods by parents who strongly believed in yoga camp, TV-deprivation and seaweed-based desserts, she left home to study linguistics and anthropology. Soon shelving the vague dream of saving the world’s endangered languages she fell headlong into compulsive travel, developing an unusual love for Turkey, the Arctic and pickup truck road trips. Carolyne holds a post-graduate degree in journalism, a great cover for her deep-rooted penchant for talking to strangers. She loves owls, all things coconut, bass-heavy music and the colour turquoise. Contact Carolyne Weldon at c.weldon@nfb.ca
