About

Antrim Caskey was born in Baltimore, MD in 1970.

Antrim made her first pictures in 1993, in southwest China, while teaching English in the Sichuan province. It was here that she began making “pictures.”:http://antrimcaskey.com/popup.php?id=6&imageNo=1

Caskey has studied photography at the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore, Palm Beach Photographic Center in Florida and the International Center of Photography in New York City.

Antrim lived and worked in India (1997-98) where she freelanced for the Indian Express and the Hindu, two of the largest daily news papers in India. At the Alliance Française in Madras, she presented an exhibition of her street photography, “People and Spaces”:http://web.mac.com/antrim16/iWeb/ANTRIM/People%20and%20Spaces.html , at the end of her stay.

Antrim landed in New York City at the end of 1998. She worked at the New York Times Magazine for several years and then left to go freelance in 2002.

In 2003, Antrim was awarded a “Pew International Journalism fellowship”:http://www.internationalreportingproject.org/fellows/2003/fall/caskey.htm to study at Johns Hopkins’ School of Advanced International Studies and then to go to Argentina on a six month reporting trip to report on the human costs of Argentina’s unprecedented economic collapse of 2002. See the video she produced “here”:http://www.pewfellowships.org/stories/argentina/argentina_cartoneros.htm

Around the time of the Republican Convention converged in Manhattan, Antrim found the “New York City Independent Media Center”:http://nyc.indymedia.org . She joined the Photo Team and began regularly contributing both pictures and text to the monthly newspaper “the Indypendent”:http://indypendent.org .

At the “Indypendent:http://web.mac.com/antrim16/iWeb/ANTRIM/clips.html , Antrim encountered Maria Gunnoe and with this began work on the story of how the coal industry is obliterating the oldest mountain range in the nation and slowly “killing off the people who have lived on these lands for a dozen decades”:http://nyc.indymedia.org/en/2006/02/64657.html . Published pieces appeared in “Orion magazine”:http://www.oriononline.org/pages/om/06-1om/Reece.html , “the Indypendent:http://nyc.indymedia.org/en/2006/01/63264.shtml, “Grist.org”:http://www.grist.org/news/maindish/2006/02/16/caskey/, “Clamor:http://www.clamormagazine.org/issues/36/, and the Columbia Journalism Review. She also has posted a collection of published work and photos at “War in Appalachia:http://www.clamormagazine.org/issues/36/ .

While working at the NYC IMC, Antrim covered “housing issues”:http://www.indypendent.org/?s=antrim+Caskey, counter-recruitment, “Critical Mass”:http://jameswagner.com/mt_archives/004862.html and protests of all kinds.

In August 2005, Antrim traveled to Kabul, Afghanistan to cover the nation’s first Parliamentary elections. In June, 2006, she returned to Afghanistan and has now just returned from a six month stay.
