Donna Carnahan, international photographer from Houston, Texas, specializes in international landscape photography. Since 2015, gaining inspiration from her love of Renaissance art in Florence, Italy, she has traveled extensively throughout 10+ regions of Italy. She has a passion for travel to remote and little known places where she photographically captures hidden gems of nature. Having studied the Italian language, culture, art and history, she is able to explore and record digitally, the majestic beauty found in landscapes, seascapes, vineyards, cliffs, caves, and architecture in a way that has been described as having a romantic vibe, beautifully composed with a three dimensional effect, and cleverly created to exhibit.
Her work was recently featured in Forbes, an American magazine. https://www.forbes.
Ms. Carnahan was selected as one of nine artists for LandEscape Art Review, Special Edition and interviewed for her body of work entitled “Mediterranean Summer.” https://issuu.com/

My Photography Collection
My collection represents majestic beauty recorded while on foot on the Amalfi coast. Bringing back my photos from the Old World reminds me of the renewal of my own mind and refreshment of my soul I experienced at the seaside and exploring the gardens of Villa Cimbrone.
Images of Italian summers can be good for the heart, soul, and mental health, as we all get through these times together. Surround yourself in the majestic beauty of Italy and feel the romantic vibes open your heart.
