Claudia Kunin worked for many years as a commercial photographer with her work featured in large editorials such as Rolling Stone. But entering her fifties and faced with a life-threatening illness, she decided she wanted to succeed as a fine artist. Using old family photographs and daguerrotypes, she began to craft a dream-like, intensely personal body of work.
Using Photoshop, Kunin offsets various color elements within each image. These are later recombined in the mind of the viewer when the work is seen through 3D glasses. The experience is extraordinary, like a peek into dark, secret and mysterious world.
Kunin’s work is in the Getty Research Institute, the Smithsonian, the Museum of Photographic Arts, and has recently been featured in Sunstruck at the Wall Space Gallery in Santa Barara, and Digital Darkroom at the Annenberg Space for Photography.
Claudia is fascinated by the stories of the past. And what she shows us today is how she brings those stories to life using her original and one of a kind, 3-D imaging.
