Christine Finkelson

I was raised in New Jersey with New York as my background.  I grew up surrounded by photography.  My grandfather was an avid and keen amateur photographer in the late 30’s till the 70’s, which inspired me.

In my 20’s, I was trained as a theatre actress, writer and filmmaker first at the Esper Studio and then at the New School for Social Research both in Manhattan.  During this period I always had a camera with me and really started sharpening my eye as a photographer.  I moved to New York in 1994 to continue my career as an actress.  But by 1999, I found that I was falling in love with photography and started seriously studying the craft at the International Center for Photography in N.Y.  trading in footlights for strobe lights.  It started with black and white film – shooting, developing and printing; then color film and printing.  When I received my first Nikon digital camera it began my passion for digital photography and archival ink jet printing.

My inspirations come from all traditions of art – film, literature, sculpture, painting and of course from all the amazing photographers of old and new.
