Mooney’s work is based on the seeking and exploration of Soul. Enlightening and recovering the “Soul” of herself and others through the lens. Her work is most often socially-engaged: although she also loves to photograph as a street photographer and portrait artist, she uses her lens as a medium of social change. In her work Courtney is most concerned with the environment, addiction, and female empowerment. Mooney interacts with the psychological and spiritual dimensions of the human experience. She prefers to shoot analog and develop and process her work in the darkroom. She is interested in moving the heart and soul of her viewer, combatting the diseases of our society for highest good and inner purpose. She is opposed to pretty photography and prefers photographs that reveal the truth of our humanity. Courtney likes her art in public spaces and is not very fond of galleries as they exist today.
