Charley Cameron

 

Charley Cameron is a writer based in New Orleans. Born and raised in Northern England, she moved to the U.S. to study photography and new media at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. With a disdain for Mid-Western winters and a passion for sustainable development, social justice and live music, she headed south to work for an NGO dedicated to post-Katrina rebuilding. When not plugging away at a computer, she can be found exploring eccentric corners of the deep south and digging through piles of old building materials in the effort to complete an eco-friendly renovation of her home in Holy Cross, an area which hopes to become the first carbon-neutral neighborhood in America.
