Pirjo Keene

Fine Art Photographer and Mixed Media Artist

My distinctive style of photography has been strongly influenced by my long association with creative arts, through studies in textiles and design and by my Scandinavian appreciation for simplicity and order.

Inspired by quirky details of everyday life and nature, I create both highly stylised graphic-style images and rich, layered and often abstracted studies of natural forms.

The experimental quality of my work comes from being able to capture what the eye cannot see – frozen of blurred motion, selective focus, distortions caused by various lenses, and from using alternative printing and transferring methods as well as the conventional photographic medium. My latest adventures include combining acrylic mono printing with photography and creating 3D photographic “sculpture”.

I am an Associate member of The Royal Photographic Society and as well as exhibiting in local galleries and participating in Open Studio Art Events, I have also had images accepted into various international exhibitions including The London Salon of Photography, The Royal Photographic Society and The London Mall Gallery Discerning Eye.
