Carpet is an air-shower array at Baksan, Russia, equipped with a large-area muon detector, which makes it possible to separate primary photons from hadrons. We report first results of the search for primary photons with energies E>1 PeV, associated with IceCube neutrino flux, in the data obtained with Carpet-2 (175 square-meter muon detector). The installation was upgraded to Carpet-3 (410 square-meter muon detector) in 2018. The sensitivity of the upgraded experiment to E>100 TeV photons is also discussed.
