Cristina Schek


Cristina Schek is the photosensitive kind. She thinks in pictures; her imagination is always in focus. She creates worlds that are myth places. They exist. Each in their own ways.

Far removed from traditional or documentary photography, the camera is merely a tool for Cristina. She enjoys the freedom of layering and manipulating her photographs into creative montages, trusting her instinct for matching the raw material with the suggestive imaginings of her subconscious.

Often whimsical and a touch romantic, her photographs are given subtle alterations in a digital process that often takes months, resulting in carefully constructed compositions, which betray the influence of the great Surrealist Old Masters.

Over the moon with the results of my new framed artwork, as I believe that the framing of my fine-art print is as important as the print itself. The glass is an important factor as well, and Leigh helped me choose state of the art non reflective glass based on the intended hanging situation. The service is first class, the finish is perfect, the knowledge and passion are impeccable.
A very high standard; I would recommend to anyone.
