BIO


Gina Lumsden Kropf is a photographer and mixed media artist currently residing in in New York, NY.   Gina was born in Raleigh, NC, where she began her BFA in studio art with an emphasis in photography.   She spent 2 years studying photography and painting at Las Positas College in Livermore, California, 2 years at the University of Missouri, St. Louis, studying photography and figure drawing, before returning to Meredith College to earn her BFA.

She spent 15 years working in photography studios and running her own as the principle photographer, before settling in Manhattan to continue her studies in art.   Using the skills and techniques she acquired in the photography field and the classic photo techniques she learned in college, Gina employs various photographic mediums such as digital photography & manipulation, analog /120mm film photography and acrylic paint. Her work explores aspects of individuality, non-conformity, and the human figure. She incorporates these ideas into her chaotic world , where she searches for understanding of human nature and her own understanding of her life and how it evolves and takes on new meaning with the passing of each decade.
