Raglan has been Geraldine’s home for 6 years now. Having previously lived here around 10 years ago – she has now settled back into the community with her partner and 2 girls – loving the lifestyle and the inspiration this place brings. Geraldine grew up in Whakatane, studied in Hamilton and lived between Raglan and the Mount for a number of years – her family roots are from Wellington and her partner’s family are an old Raglan family – so there’s a strong pull to this place. Always living near the sea.
After years of selling photo blocks and art prints at markets and stores round the upper North Island – Geraldine is now concentrating on her Fine Art Photography. Exclusive, professionally framed artworks – curated into exhibitions held frequently. Her style is raw and real – she captures a mood and a sense of ‘being there’ – with no flashy digital altering of the image. Being a graphic designer influences Geraldine’s photography style – composition, angles and textures are apparent in her images.
Raglan, weather and music are what inspires this artist. The empty grey misty Raglan is her fave. Natural colours, nature’s palette. NZ’s raw beauty. You’ll often find Geraldine looking in the other direction from everyone else – not the sunset, but the light on the trees that the sunset is creating. Not the big waves for surfing, but the calm little waves at the water’s edge.
Geraldine’s latest venture is to create one offs – selling exclusive images in this duplicated fast-paced world we live in. She is available for commissioned work and would love to meet you, view your space and create a piece exclusively for you.
‘I just love taking photos, it’s what makes me happy. I love to share what I see, how I view the world.’
