A New York based art photographer and model, Germaine Persinger discovered her passion for visual storytelling and still photography while completing her Masters degree in landscape architecture.
Working in the modeling industry, being in a relationship with her partner filmmaker, and involving herself in various creative fields drew her closer to still photography.
After focusing on flower and plant photography, Germaine transitioned to creating surreal portraiture based on realism. She aims to capture images centered on philosophical and psychological ideas. She draws from these concepts, literature, poetry and other visual arts for inspiration.
Germaine takes time to visualize a concept and plan as effectively as possible. After she forms an idea, she moves on to choose the people who will be photographed, the colors to be used, and the general composition of the photo. Although the final image is still subject to unpredictable elements and spontaneous choices, this process allows her to bring her idea to realization.
Above all, her goal is to create photography that exemplifies the still image’s capability for visual storytelling and significance beyond the surface while expressing her artistic voice in aesthetically pleasing ways. [Official Website]
