Gretjen Helene


Gretjen Helene is a professional and fine art/sculptural photographer who works with traditional alternative photographic processes as well as in a documentary style. She has exhibited throughout the Boston area, New York City and in Alaska. She studied at Emerson College and the Art Institute of Boston, where she later taught Publication/ Exhibition Photography.

Gretjen has an affinity for eggshells and the symbolism they evoke; of autonomy and the cycle of life. She was taught pysanky at a young age by her mother and has been continuing the tradition since. The layering of wax and the subtractive dyeing process of pysanky has a likeness to the traditional photographic processes of developing and printing images in the darkroom.
