About my art & my resume -> below
It’s me. Corina. Just a woman, mother, grandma and a friend, with a camera whose heart beats fiercely to make magic out of the ordinary.
If you would have told me in my early years that I would end up as an art photographer, I would have loved that but probably wouldn’t have believed you. Some beautiful years of raising three beautiful daughters and grandson had to come first. But here I am, and I absolutely can not imagine doing anything else now.
When I’m not taking photos, you can find me drinking strong coffee, watching Netflix, listening to loud (techno)-music (yes, the older, the crazier ;), doing fun stuff with my grandson, eating with my girls and occasionally dancing at a good party!
To me it’s not just about the pictures, it’s about the feeling.
If you’re looking for someone with a fancy camera, you’re at the wrong place. I create.
I’m not the right photographer for everyone and that’s absolutely ok! But if you feel we can create something special together, let’s do it!
ABOUT MY ART
After starting photography a few years ago, and devoting all my free time to photography, I developed my style & techniques of my camera and (post)-production, I give my own contemporary twist to photography. I have a strong preference for black and white, portraits, still lifes and surrealism (or just call me a bit weird).
I work intuïtively and I’m always looking for more than ‘just’ an image. From that feeling I start creating my artwork by using photos from my own digital library and some found footage, to make one of a kind artworks by printing, cutting, reworking, colouring by hand, layering and combining again and again. The end results are digital and paper collages, handmade prints on wood layered with beeswax, prints in vintage wooden (cigar)boxes or frames.
Here I have also released work from my archives and it is printed in collaboration with a highly experienced studio near my hometown.
My work is very personal and I hope to engage you to project your own story, so the work will become yours. My interpretations are completely irrelevant.
