02.10.2013 The San Francisco Chronicle The Boudoir Mans Up by Tony Bravo "These days Oakland photographer Mariah Carle is just as likely to take provocative portraits of either sex at her Jingletown studio. Her first subject was a female friend looking to do a boudoir shoot in 2008; less than a year later, men starting calling with the same request. For Carle, boudoir shoots are less about nudity and overtly sexual setups and more about helping people get comfortable in front of the camera."
02.08.13 Gray Loft Gallery 2nd Annual Love Show On display will be photographs, paintings, collage, sculpture, jewelry, textiles and handmade cards which reflect love, passion, lust, hope, romance, broken hearts, unrequited love, true love, and hearts in many shapes and forms. This is not a Hallmark Valentine show, but rather a visual dialogue about love in its many incarnations and interpretations that reflect a diverse theme of love.

6.22.2012 The Seattle Times Seattle Erotic Art Festival marks its 10th anniversary by Michael Upchurch "Bay Area photographer Mariah Carle's "Shorts" is about defiance as much as sensuality. Her body-painted male model (a military veteran?) has one arm amputated and a rippling scar in the middle of his belly. Staring directly into the camera, he's fully owning and transcending his damage." Also I won a grant award for 'The Little Black Dress' art installation as well as having 2 of my visual art pieces, "Shorts" and "Flicking the Bean" in the show.
5.10.2012 Bay Area Reporter Considering the Penis "The Dick Show" at the Center for Sex and Culture: "The Dick Show" The Dick Show, curated by Jack Davis, a long-time Radical Faerie well known for crocheting and exhibiting penis covers, brushes against ideas of gender. Along with other Bay Area artists, Mariah Carle exhibited her nude study. "The nude study taken by photographer Mariah Carle is razor-crisp yet warm, revealing a one-armed and much-scarred man, defiant and proud."By John F. Karr

04.10.12 San Jose Mercury News Boudoir Photography Goes Mainstream. Boudoir Photo Essay "My oldest client was 75," says Mariah Carle, who started Bay Area Boudoir five years ago in a live-work artist's loft in Oakland's Jingletown neighborhood near Interstate 880. "She wanted to preserve her good looks, just like younger women who say, 'I want nice pictures of myself before I'm old and wrinkly.' Others, of course, are just exhibitionists and want to do it in a safe place."
