Artist Profile: Cindy Greenstein
I spend as much time as I can delighting in the beauty and joy of nature. During the time I spend there, I photograph. I make art. Art is everywhere you look. To me, it’s magic when I find the ExtraOrdinary in the Ordinary.
I create art with my camera and… yes, my iPhone. I see it as a new medium – iPhoneography. Creative apps and editing programs are my new paint brushes.
I choose to see the beautiful in everything and make art with it. I can’t help myself. It’s just what I do.
I’ve been an artist all my life, my mother knew it when I was three. My father was a design engineer for Polaroid in the 1960s. As part of his job, he brought home beta cameras for us to try out. When I was 11, I got to “test” the SX-70 - the innovative camera that let you watch the photo develop right before your eyes. It was magical.
I studied art and photography in college. I created a company called Picture This! Event Photography in 2002. For 15 years, I have photographed hundreds of weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, families, children, high school seniors, corporate events, and pets (I am considered the “Dog Whisperer” of photographers. Seriously!)
But here is where my true love resides: Fine art photography. Finding the beautiful ExtraOrdinary in the Ordinary.
I hope you experience joy in viewing my work and the big, bold, beautiful, colors and subjects make you feel happy.
