Cristina Stolhe’s photography captures the raw essence of everyday life while creating a "more than meets the eye" game by infusing images with emotions that may not seem apparent. Stolhe’s scenes elicit a sense of nostalgia, a familiar feeling, yet expose the intimacy of the moment through a voyeur lens, attempting to treasure the instant and make it everlasting. In a way, she invites us to consider how our individual experiences and memories shape our lives and identities . As a result of an unfiltered, harsh and suffocating reality, her images often deliver a visual jolt—a visual trauma that transmutes the non-aesthetic into the aesthetic and the aesthetic into an ominous presence.
Stolhe has worked with clients including Loewe, All-In, Nensi Dojaka, Keisuke Yoshida, Paloma Wool, Miista and Edward Cuming.
