Located in New York, British-born, Janine Menlove is a photo-based artist and has managed her own photography studio and business for over 30 years. She has traveled the globe on thousands of assignments photographing cars, places, architecture, and celebrities.
Several of Janine's projects emerge from groups of thematic photos from personal archives that juxtaposed and in unity, complete a narrative of personal and/or global reference. Janine's bold photomontages include graphic patterns and colourful palettes, and explore relationships between objects, place, and time—in a blend of significance and whimsy.
"I'm drawn to photomontage because of its ability to create a narrative with the compilation of diverse and fragmented visual information. The compilation of select components challenges the imagination and is power over time and place. The mastery of photomontage permits the practical capacity to breakdown limitations between imagination and reality."
Janine's artwork is exhibited in solo, and group shows and is in private and corporate collections. Janine lives with her husband just North of New York City on the banks of the Hudson River. She is an artist member of Upstream Gallery in Hastings-on-Hudson, always carries a camera, and appreciates nature and culture in the Hudson Valley and New York City.
