About Christina White
Christina White was born in Uccles, Belgium in 1958 and spent most of her childhood in France. She worked as a Graphic Designer for a short while, and as a Fine Artist while travelling widely with her husband and family. She has previously exhibited paintings and sculpture in Wales and Cambridge. Her work is related to her local landscape, exploring the post industrial landscape and the current changes from limestone quarrying.
She uses a large format camera to produce 5×4 inch (10.1 x 12.7cm) negatives which she processes herself. The negatives are then digitally scanned. Multiple exposures in camera and in post processing create images which reveal the narrative of the industrial past. The printer forms part of the creative process and each photograph is produced using two layers of giclée pigment printing.
