About the Author
Anita Chernewski a New York photographer grew up in Brooklyn, New York. Chernewski's photography career started in the 1960's along with her other interests of art, film making, theatre and drama. She was intrigued with the magic that went on behind the scenes: set design and lighting. She bought a second hand camera and started photographing dolls and marionettes. The dolls became her theatre troupe; her cast of characters. This led her to another series called "Wild Illusions" a group of photographs taken of the dioramas at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The inanimate objects became her models, and the stage was set.
Ms. Chernewski's other series include still life's, amusement parks and abstracts. She uses various photographic cameras such as 35mm , large format and pinhole cameras. She prints her images using different processes such as gelatin silver, vandyke, cyanotype and palladium.
Ms. Chernewski's work has been exhibited internationally, and her photographs are in the permanent collections at The J. Paul Getty Museum, Brooklyn Museum, and in numerous private and corporate collections.
