The surreal photography of Janine Machiedo
After a couple of holiday weeks I am happy to be back with a full post, this time, to present you Janine Machiedo, a Germany based fine art photographer.
As a lot of other artists I wrote about (Kristamas Klousch, Elyssa Obscura, Rimel Neffati) she often uses herself as the model for her creations, and if this could be just a matter of convenience - she’s always available (quoting the great Francesca Woodman) it is also probably the sign that the stories she wants to tell are strongly related to her dreams and feelings.
Janine has very good skills at using Photoshop in order to shape her photos in ethereal and surreal, almost paint-like pictures, and her work has some similarities with Brooke Shaden’s art.

Janine describes her work as "a break from the daily routine". As I asked her where she gets her ideas from, the first thing she told me was about a simple little detail of her life. Every night she invents a story for her little girl. It always have to be something that´s "impossible".
"This is a wonderful way to train my mind, to think in unusual ways. I think everybody should do that".
