PHOTOGRAPHY

 

As a photographer Lix seeks the imperfections that make each of us, each fleeting moment, and the world around us, utterly unique. She strives to capture our points of difference, our foibles and eccentricities, our daydreams and delusions, our innate temporality. She believes that in the juxtaposition of wonderful strangeness lies an exquisite, honest beauty far greater than that built on pure symmetry, calculable balance or flawlessness.

 

With over 18 years experience as a fine artist, Lix imbues her photographic work with a unique creative edge. Digital processing and image manipulation are two of her specialties. She’s known to set up her photographic compositions and lighting with creative editing in mind. She champions the use of lighting that creates drama while enhancing the most interesting or desirable aspects of a form or subject’s natural aesthetic.
