The surreal photography of Janine Machiedo

After a couple of holiday weeks I am happy to be back with a full post, this time, to present you Janine Machiedo, a Germany based fine art photographer.

As a lot of other artists I wrote about (Kristamas Klousch, Elyssa Obscura, Rimel Neffati) she often uses herself as the model for her creations, and if this could be just a matter of convenience – she’s always available (quoting the great Francesca Woodman) it is also probably the sign that the stories she wants to tell are strongly related to her dreams and feelings.
Janine has very good skills at using Photoshop in order to shape her photos in ethereal and surreal, almost paint-like pictures, and her work has some similarities with Brooke Shaden’s art.
Her style is also more heterogeneous if compared to the body of work of other similar artist, but reading the presentation on her website it’s clear Janine wants no boundaries for her art!

Please check some examples of her art and then head to her website for more.
