Ellen Jantzen's "Alternate Realities" Photography Art Book

Oct 02, 2010 – Camp Hill, PA - Sunbury Press has released Ellen Jantzen's book "Ellen Jantzen: Alternate Realities". The book features the digital artwork of photographer / digital artist Ellen Jantzen. 


About the book: 

If anyone were capable of capturing the mystery of quantum mechanics; the uncertainty and duality of photons (light energy), Ellen Jantzen has done it. Her photo-based work, referred to by the artist as "photo-synthesis", combines the use of unusual staged photo sets and very creative and imaginative digital manipulation. The end product is a series of very odd and mysterious images that tend to unsettle you. While there is some familiarity for the viewer in the backgrounds or settings, the forms presented are highly unusual, albeit 'faux natural'. Clearly, they convey the sense of viewing something new in nature for the first time: an unusual animal, a spirit, a shaman, a dance, etc.

I was born and raised in St. Louis, but moved to California in 1990 to attend FIDM in downtown Los Angeles. Here, I obtained an advanced degree in Fashion in1992. After working at Mattel Toy Co. as a senior project designer, I became disillusioned with the corporate world. Having been trained in computer design while at Mattel, I continued my training using mostly Photoshop software.
As digital technology advanced and newer cameras were producing excellent resolution, I found my perfect medium. It was a true confluence of technological advancements and creative desire that culminated in my current body of work.
