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.
