Brigitte Carnochan’s painted gelatin silver photographs have been exhibited at galleries and museums nationally and internationally. A book of her images, Bella Figura: Painted Photographs by Brigitte Carnochan, containing 73 color plates of her work will be published by Modernbook Editions in July 2006. A second, limited edition monograph with 11 gelatin silver photographs, The Shining Path, will be published by 21st Publications in late 2006. Carnochan was named a Hasselblad Master Photographer for 2003 and her work has recently been featured on the cover of Camera Arts and in Polaroid Magazine, Black and White, Studija, and Hasselblad Forum magazines. Three catalogs of her work have been published. The first accompanied exhibitions in 1997.

Myth and the Natural World was published in coordination with exhibitions in the summer and fall of 2005.
