Welcome to the 2018 Belladonna* auction!

Note: We’ve discovered that PayPal’s “Buy It Now” button is temperamental. In order to “buy it now” please use the regular bidding button, but bid $1 above the “buy it now” price. That seems to do the trick. However, if you’re having any trouble with bidding on an item, please don’t hesitate to send a note to us at belladonna series [at] and we can facilitate on the backend. Thanks for supporting Belladonna* Collaborative!

Note about shipping: Free shipping is included on some, but not all, items. If you have questions about shipping costs, please query us before bidding. Most items can also be picked up in person from our studio in Crown Heights.

Carolyn Monastra, Jökulsárlón #4, 2009, chromogenic print, 11″ x 14,” unframed.

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Carolyn Monastra received her MFA in photography from The Yale School of Art. For the past fifteen years her work has focused on creating and discovering mystery in the natural world. Artist residencies at The Djerassi Foundation, Blue Mountain Center, and the Saltonstall Foundation have given her inspirational environments in which to create her work. After being on a residency at the Skaftfell Visual Arts Center in Iceland, Carolyn was motivated to begin her current project,The Witness Tree, a project to honor and preserve places affected by climate change. Over the past four years she has visited nineteen US states, seventeen countries and every continent researching and photographing for this project. In 2012, she was selected by The Climate Reality Project to become one of their Climate Leaders. Some of Carolyn’s awards include a production grant from The Puffin Foundation, a travel grant from the English Speaking Union, and a multi-media fellowship from BRIC. Her work is in the Marguiles collection in Miami and has been exhibited in venues across the United States and in China, Northern Ireland, and Switzerland. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
