About Photographer

Christine Murphy started  developing photographs at age 13 in her homemade darkroom. She developed more than negatives; she developed a lifelong love of photography and has since honed the art of of capturing the emotion of her subjects in her photographs. As a nature lover and resident of the Sierra foothills during the lovechild ’60’s’, Christine’s adventures with photography grew while hiking the remote California mountains and living deep in the woods, carrying her camera and her banjo everywhere–in company only with her German Shepard dog. Her experiments with natural lighting have brought her international admirers who appreciate the sensitive impact of her work.Christine now lives in Hollywood, CA and wanders the landscapes of California to capture it’s wild beauty.
