Cary Wolinsky worked as a news photographer for The Boston Globe in 1968 while completing a degree in photojournalism at Boston University. Soon after graduating, Wolinsky received assignments from national publications including Natural History, Smithsonian, Newsweek, and International Wildlife.
In 1972, Wolinsky began his 35-year career as a National Geographic photographer, producing picture essays in Europe, Africa, Russia, Papua New Guinea, Australia, Peru, India, China, and Japan. His photographs have been published in books and magazines throughout the world. His photographic prints have been acquired by museums and private collectors in the United States, Europe, Australia and Asia.
Wolinsky co-founded the Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University and TRIIIBE, an artists collaborative. He now works with his son Yari, a filmmaker, and his wife Babs, a graphic designer, making documentary films. Their company, Trillium Studios Films, produced Raise the Roof, a feature-length documentary about the reconstruction of an 18th-century Polish wooden synagogue. The film has been featured at more than 150 film festivals and is currently being broadcast on public television stations across the US.
