Corey Perrine (b. 1979) is a documentary photographer. He is focused on capturing communities, cultures and subcultures through issue reporting, events, sports, and portraits.
He is attracted to light, lines, colors, layers, moments, faces, hands, feet, sentiment, nostalgia, oddities, juxtaposition, pop culture, sports, yelling, explosions, speed, boldness, subtle and the unnoticed.
He began his career at Robert E. Lee High School in Springfield, Va. as an entertainment reporter and cartoonist for The Lance in 1995. Swearing off newspapers, he stumbled into it again after discovering his love affair for people's stories and understanding the importance of visual preservation.
With a decade of experience, he has been privileged to work full-time for The Daily Universe (Provo, Utah), The Dispatch Tribune (Kansas City, Mo.), The Nashua Telegraph (N.H.), The Augusta Chronicle (Ga.), Omaha World-Herald (Neb.) and currently The Naples Daily News (Fla.).
He occasionally freelances for The New York Times.
His awards are many but appreciates the simple feedback, from those he documents and the community, most.
While not chasing light or a good story, Corey spends time with sweet wife/partner in crime, Sarah, sleeping, watching movies, running, collecting trance/electronic music, exploring, and playing with his hyper-active dogs Sam and Xena.
Corey enjoys spicy food, yelling at the television when his teams lose, couch fort building and eavesdropping on conversations in public.
