Submarine by Corinne Geertsen

Artist of the Month

Corinne Geertsen took a Photoshop class in 2007 with the intent of restoring old photographs, but taking that class placed her on a completely different path.

“A few weeks into the class, I began seeing the people in my photos as characters in dramas” Geertsen says. “I’ve been working digitally ever since.”

As a digital photo collage artist, Geertsen fuses old family photographs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries with her own pictures. Often, Geertsen creates a painting, photographs it and then adds to it digitally. She prints them herself in small editions on archival photo paper with archival inks.
