Cheraine Collette

Born in the Netherlands in 1993, Collette graduated in 2015 in Photographic Design at the Fotovakschool – University of Applied Photography. She is an emerging international award-winning fine art photographer. Her work brings together her extensive knowledge of photography, digital painting and photo manipulation. The fauna portrayed in her photographs is often shot on location across the globe. Collette then carefully stitches together selected images, constructing layers that set the final scene.

Her work is dedicated to showing the constant battle between nature and humanity, along with the beauty and vulnerability of nature. The goal: to inspire better preservation of both our natural and cultural heritage.
